This creative, practice-led project considers the potential of essay film to negotiate a complex whanau narrative. It explores the intricate pathway of a family born and raised between two cultures who must navigate the space between. By definition, this in-between or liminal space, is transitional; a space to be traversed. However, the project, in unpacking and synthesising narratives, proposes the liminal as a place in which one might rightfully stand. Thus the ‘half-caste’ might be of both worlds but exist, fully resolved, within a third space.
