The Whangara people, inhabitants of the east coast of New Zealand, have always picked a first-born male to be the chief of the tribe.  Traditions are tested when Pai, an 11-year old girl, believes it is her destiny to be the new chief.  She must fight against thousands of years of traditions, and her beloved grandfather Koro, chief of the Whangara, in order to fulfill her dreams.

Family Flicks is a new outdoor film series in collaboration with Slab Cinema.  Special performances and art activities begin one hour prior to screening time; films begin promptly at sundown.  Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and picnics.  During inclement weather, Family Flicks will be held in the Museum's auditorium.
