The Battalion returns!

Battalion-Poppy

Te Rākau’s tribute to Te Hokowhitu-a-Tū (28th Māori Battalion) returns this February, in our inaugural Pūtahi Festival! The Battalion tells two stories: the first about five young men who swap 1930s rural New Zealand for a life of adventure and heartbreak, and the other about their descendants who face a very different war on the Home-front. The Battalion stars veteran actorJim Moriarty, and newcomers Vanessa Kumar (The Ragged), Sandy Milesic (Dog&Bone), and Matt Dussler (Dog&Bone).
