Summary: Turei’s family are hard-working potato farm workers in rural New Zealand. A talented musician, Turei dreams of his band being the support act for Bob Marley’s 1979 tour. But it’s a dream that challenges the traditions and values of his upbringing and will set him at odds with his family – particularly his father, a true man of the land. Mt Zion is a family-oriented story starring Australian Idol winner Stan Walker in his acting debut and Temuera Morrison (‘Once Were Warriors’). It is written and directed by Tearepa Kahi, who drew inspiration for the story from his own family background. The film features original music in a uniquely New Zealand Maori take on Marley’s reggae.
