Archived: The Vultures

A Fiery and Intelligent Satire

The Vultures is a story of full of razor-sharp barbs, inspired by conversations of privilege, clean water and iwi Māori navigating through a post settlement world.

Sister Nurse Hinemoa and her siblings, Magazine Magnate Atawhai and Prodigious Businessman Petera, were raised in the glow of privilege and a seemingly endless summer.

But long after their idyllic childhood at the Lake, the race for wealth and empire have splintered the whānau. To resolve the matter of their land the siblings have been called together and they must agree to expand the empire… even if it means destroying the world in the process.
Starring the familiar faces of Nicola Kawana (The Brokenwood Mysteries, Find me a Māori Bride) and TeKohe Tuhaka (Pop up Globe, The Deadlands, Go Girls) this show deals with the incredibly topical issues of land ownership and environmental pollution and how Māori deal with the repercussions of decisions made by successive governments that have had disastrous consequences.
