Activity 2: After a morning of learning about beached whales in Golden Bay, you and your group are driven to a nearby town, Nelson, to watch a special movie called ‘Whale Rider.’ It is a famous movie about a young girl who was born and raised in New Zealand. Watch the following movie trailers for Whale Rider: Whale Rider trailer #1 and Whale Rider Trailer #2 and then write a summary of the movie on your blog. What is it about? Be sure to also give the movie a rating out of 5 based on the trailer [1 = bad movie, 2 = okay movie, 3 = pretty good, 4 = good movie, 5 = excellent movie].
This movie was about a young girl who was born and raised in New Zealand. She comes from a long generation of great chiefs. Only males are allowed to go to chiefdom which is in a Maori tribe This ancient way it upset when the next chief dies at birth (stillborn). His twin sister Pai survives. At the age of 12, she joined with the help of her grandmother and the training with her uncle represent her rights.
My Rating from 1 to 5:
[1 = bad movie, 2 = okay movie, 3 = pretty good, 4 = good movie, 5 = excellent movie].
To be honest I would give this movie a 4 out of 5 because the story itself is really interesting. I would recommend this movie for anyone who is interested in whales, leadership, and Maori culture.
