Merata was the first Māori woman to write and direct a narrative feature in 1988 (Mauri). Her political films denounced abuses Māori people were suffering from in the 80’s and often divided the country. She became an international hero but was considered a domestic nuisance. She worked across the globe for the BBC, National Geographic and directed films in Hollywood, interviewed Robert Mugabe and followed Louis Farakhan; yes she was fearless.
