From Checkpoint, 6:21 pm on 3 February 2015

It was a genuine anthem of the times, and now the story of the 1984 song, Poi E, is being turned into a movie. Staring Maaka Pohatu as Dalvanius Prime, 'POI E: 'The Story Behind Our Song' tells of the ground-breaking fusion between 1980s pop and traditional Maori music, performed by the Patea Maori Club. Jim Mora talks to writer/director Teareta Kahi.
