a film by Pietra Brettkelly

"He's precious, and gifted, a wiseman... but really he's just a child. Hee, hee." Obama broke the mould. And a teenager in New Zealand is breaking the mould to eventually stand in history with such a leader. MAORI BOY GENIUS is a coming-of-age film profiling 16 year-old Ngaa Rauuira Pumanawawhiti, railing against his people's statistics of uneducated youth, prisons, gangs and alarming suicide rates. At 4 he learnt English. At 12 he began his first university degree. At 14 he googled international politics and up came Yale University. What if you could turn back the clock and watch the minds forming of those who would create political zeitgeist shifts in the future? MAORI BOY GENIUS does just that.
