Kerry Warkia is an emerging producer who has been at the forefront of some of New Zealand’s most innovative content for both television and web. Passionate about telling Māori and Pasifika stories she is now making the move into feature films.
Most recently Kerry has wrapped production on a groundbreaking feature film Waru made up of 8 vignettes - each a 10 minute single shot - made in collaboration with 8 wāhine (female) Māori film-makers. It is due for release in 2017.
In 2014 Kerry was acknowledged as that year’s “Woman to Watch” at the NZ WIFT Awards, a testament to Kerry’s determination to tell a diverse range of stories that ignite her passion.
