A documentary short film by Glenda Tuaine


This Award winning 15-minute documentary Produced and Directed by Film maker Glenda Tuaine  portrays the living treasure 'Taonga' Master Carver Mike Tavioni. The film weaves part of his life story, his connection to artistic expression in all its forms and his undeniable drive for change. This short documentary captures Mike’s connection with art and teaching. How he experiments and pushes boundaries when others will remain cautious. How he provokes and questions the status quo always pursuing knowledge to find answers to questions that others may be too conservative to ask
