4:09 am
the attackers motivations world now in terms of what we know so far it was about 1 o'clock when the attacker lunged at fellow police officers inside the paris headquarters he had a ceramic knife so it was a knife that would not have been detected by the metal detectors we also understand that a police officer that had been nearby witnessing the scene opened fire and killed the attacker or the french president a man or mark rohr as well as the french prime minister and interior minister were at the scene the interior minister gave his condolences to the the victims' families he said that this shows what a difficult job the police have to do and it has to be said this comes just one day after thousands of police officers marched across paris to protest against what they say are increasingly stressful conditions and also against what they say is increasing police violence but it has to be said that a few of them would have expected an attack to come from within their ranks.

4:11 am
a morning meeting of the cabinet boris johnson told ministers he would defend his new brakes of proposals in parliament with glutinous and molly and it's typical johnson language meaning he'd be sirup the sweet he very much mr proved to be a prime minister and his proposals could hardly have seemed removed reasonable this government's objective has always been to leave with a deal and these constructive and reasonable proposals show our seriousness of purpose of alternative a range but the prime minister's proposals while welcomed by former skeptics on his own side have not gone down well with the opposition plan to have even the remotest customs checks on the island of ireland while northern ireland alone retains elements of the e.u. single market has been shot down as not credible and designed to fail if he doesn't get a deal at the october council summit will he abide by the laws. of this country

about list in the 1900 s. we don't want to go back to that the majority of people in the north don't the majority of people in the republic of ireland don't but if we're going to be in 2 different customs unions i think that creates a real difficulty this going to be very hard to reconcile separately european commission president john paul has called the plan problematic senior european parliament figures say they won't support it boris johnson will have to use his most glutinous emoluments when he had told fans expect a donor tour of e.u. capitals later this week jonah hill al-jazeera london 2 years are vegas shootings the family is and loved ones of the victims and reached a $735000000.00 settlement with the hotel that housed the gunman 58 people were killed in the deadliest mass shooting in u.s. history when the gunman opened fire from a 2nd set just 32nd floor of the mandalay bay before turning his weapon on himself

4:19 am

4:22 am
a beautiful backdrop for brought bastar off the blockbuster but beyond the cinematic vistas the country is home to robust group of indigenous filmmakers actors and produces this week they're among a group of industry leaders meeting to discuss ways that they can tell their own stories. is that. welcome to the power of inclusion it's a 2 day summit being held here and auckland new zealand that's designed to ensure that diverse and inclusive spaces are the norm when it comes to the film and t.v. industry more than 700 people are gathered to discuss just that and one of the heavyweights doing the work to lane jones is the president of director. film collective or a it's a distribution and arts advocacy organization based in los angeles she's earned film credits that include the oscar nominated selma and the 4 time emmy winner and oscar nominated documentary 13 or a recently acquired an acclaimed new zealand doc we'll hear from the director about
4:23 am
film in just a moment but 1st here's what to lane had to say about why diversity in this industry is so important you know when we started the company when we started the mission we knew what we wanted to do was to amplify people of color and women and so when you start from the very beginning you know with that mindset and with that direction it just becomes a part of what you do and it's what we do every single day how do we ensure diversity and inclusion are more than just buzz words to name says listen to diverse voices. and we get every day just that joining us from oakland to discuss this a free meter he's the filmmaker of the documentary marotta how mom de color nice the screen he's mother murat's anita was a notable indigenous filmmaker in new zealand at just rachel house. of glamour tala in the disney animated film she also helped create the maoi language question of the film and carrie was kiya she is
4:24 am
a producer at the brains behind the production company brown sugar apple everybody every morning great to see you again i am really curious about how you see the new zealand film industry right now it seems to be surviving carry you stop how would you describe it. and you know i think it is thriving and i think that's why we have a lot of international productions i think it's really important to continue to support the local productions particularly the voices and under represented voices the voices of women and the voices of people of color and i think i hope that there's much more of a move towards that after this the summit is a lot more action to do that so that these stories can be told i think new zealand film industry and i'm not sure how would you describe. i would say i mean there's almost like a been diagram going on the island film industry that supplies the world with all
4:25 am
these big budget hollywood production and we've got new zealand going this 3 that's made for new zealand audiences the one between the problems reach across both bases so much carrying on let me remind audiences they may not even know that means england was the basis for some of these movies productions so let me take it to the movies via i mean zealand these were made in the.
4:26 am
rachel such a stunning location what an amazing place to make films you have been in some major major films i am wondering as an actress in new zealand is this the best time ever . here i mean we. were. on on all of these here. was the one we are still struggling. yeah you know. it was a. year which is about. the cry of every minority group around the wealth to be included and you laid some
4:27 am
strides and you were in a production of disney production in disney have been criticised for many many years about how they have treated minorities and how they have of the and so many criticisms of kind of begin to get into them but you paid a grandma. and this fairy definitely had a polynesian touch to it and you helped them do it even better that's for a little clip of your vocal work have a look. when i die. i'm going to come back because why not. sure i chose the wrong time. why are you acting weird i'm livin it crazy lady that's my job if there's something you want to just tell me. something you want to tell me is this something you want to hear. a good phrase for today's conversation rachael
4:28 am
how do you start how did you start the colonizing the cinema i can see aspects of that already in that disney film and all 3 of you are doing that right now with your work. yeah i mean look we just have to be a bowl and we've got a right no room and we have to challenge. the funding bodies about you know funding would think rich and find that your next boy says there are about us. it's all we can do at this stage. it's not happening as much i will say they and i think they need a film commission of very willing to engage in conversations with us about out on and i want to say as much as we do i think. that outlook is is produced and directed and written by our let's be very specific downside with that disney film
4:29 am
ana. went out into the local community and said we are going to make a number of this and we going to voice it with to show indigenous voices tell us how it. well you know it was an idea that hike away. and chose the one family had very early on you know kind of young children and and it was that one was a huge hit without people was a huge hit with i want to major in people. the visibility. because of it you know it was significant and i think you know i do know that. that has made it a lot of criticism but really if you look at the body of work coming out now it's very inclusive the you know the giant and we have thing these
4:30 am
cultures and and faith is you know is that that we we don't often say and in such a major way so anyway but. it hadn't met the impact it was criticized for nationally and then when it came out it was embraced because there was that recognition oh ok or beth out. and rachel talking carrie is not and i think it's not entirely what's behind that knowledge to try and i just completely agree with right jill i think that was wonderful 'd and it was it was great to see ourselves on screen and i think great to see us in the mainstream and to hear you know for right jill to be voicing grandma that you know she is like an icon here so that was that was wonderful and also the work that you know tiger and chelsea judge to have it into their mouth and for that to be available for. young new
4:31 am
zealanders particularly the maori language all of that's wonderful and that is to be celebrated we should we should celebrate we should celebrate that i was listening to the maoists i thought last night and sort of absent from the force i could jump. all right joe let me just share this with you. i love this tweet to have ava du vernay give you some credit and careless beautiful thing i haven't even i says this man made a beautiful talk about his mother the legendary maui filmmaker but out and lisa she believes in decriminalizing movie screens here i'm just going to scroll down to you looking very dapper here you tell a story about your mom that is more than just a personal family story it's a story about a determined indigenous filmmaker who was the 1st of her kind shaking up the film industry why did you feel that this was such an important story to tell you know
4:32 am
a lot of the issues and the barriers that she was coming up against 30 years ago when she was 1st starting her career and i think resonate a lot today a lot of my mom's early work was about money land protests money rights protests and you just need to look at what's going on in places like hawaii with the protests that mona care at the time was making the film that the quota pipeline protests were going on and so there was this wave of activism amongst indigenous people and that was something that my mom was already working on quite a few decades ago and that those situations really interested me because it was like things have definitely changed and positive ways across the board in many many ways but there i look laces and wedge we're still fighting fight and we're still doing the same things that we're still going on you know to look for decades now and that was one of the big motivating factors for me in actually sharing my mom's story but the rest of the world let me just show a little clip here and this is
4:33 am
a clip from the making of the trailer of. the film which is called marotta how mom decolonized the screening. what you see when you look at an archival film a really rich and taking place. is the grandmother indigenous and it was about changing history changing the way native people people were perceived by the rest of the world and is that contrast with the way you feel. very much so i don't think you regard me as agree. we share this tweet with you jason says bill cinematic bridges it was a mentor to many because if we can think of indigenous cinema in an international
4:34 am
sense today there are stories that she told about new zealand that people were shocked that were happening in new zealand stories of racism stories of indigenous communities being left out and being seen as as less than the rest of the community or less than people who had paid less than. those stories do you feel that they're still relevant today. oh absolutely i mean you know those stories didn't go down too well here in new zealand during my mother's time because they were quite confronting and people didn't you know a lot of people want cinema to be an escape but she was more interested in the realism of the situation facing money in society so the way that she was able to continue her career in the way that kind of it was actually in a strange way almost benefited was that she took a stories of the sea and she found that there were many people like indigenous
4:35 am
communities around the world who were facing similar issues and she found allies and contemporaries in places like an aboriginal communities in this trailer indigenous communities in canada and hawaii or lead the world and so she was able to link these people together and form a bit of a network of indigenous filmmakers around the world so that there was content that could be shared and a like a festival circuit that could be shared where we could actually watch and relate to each other struggles and that level of empathy and then feeling that you're not alone in the world that these issues of colonisation you need to you i think is really important and really powerful to help support people who can sometimes be in some pretty dark places because of the results of things like on my station i am just not have a picture have you reckon you have your own production company you're an actress it's almost as if you felt if we're going to tell our stories we're going to have
4:36 am
to tour after south and we need to be in charge we've talked about how amazing the new zealand film c.m.'s but who is behind the camera we're making the films perhaps affront to the camera reference and stories from a business community but who is controlling his palace and i think perhaps what you want to include was more about. yeah i mean i'm really passionate about who who is who is in the key creative roles and who's telling the stories and i actually think that to colonizing the screen also starts with to colonizing the structures that we're that in which we get to tell those stories you know you're still asking indigenous people to look into systems of funding that are built on colonize ation and so that doesn't necessarily work for everyone and the structure and model that we were with with the writer directors of what even the writer directors of by definitely challenges that system and see as well that might not necessarily be how we want to make we're and i think that has to be embraced and i think you know he
4:37 am
the right talked about that yesterday as well so karen just a slowing down because everybody has all of those 3 people that you mentioned and the 2 films that you mentioned as well the rest of us have had to not worry as a film that vi is a film that. is a film but it's a collaborative film and it starts at 10 am and it talks about the death of a child but from different perspectives of different women and it has vignettes of different stories i should be telling your story because at the point the point of this discussion but i want to show a little clip so people know what we're talking about let's have a look at why. i'm struggling. and.
4:38 am
you know what i thought i was. so careful this is an example in the cinema. but what if that the original director was going to be a mallet and then what yeah that's right yeah well i'm it where he was going to be . that sort of how we created but as we as we started to talk more about it we at we really understood that he shouldn't be telling that story and he shouldn't be having that hour and we wanted to give it over to maadi female writers and directors and we wanted to have 8 in the room we actually worked with 9 writer directors all together and it was really important to do that and i think that that is also part of colonizing is handing over the power. to that those people can tell
4:39 am
their stories and i can control what what it is that we're all seeing and listening to and experiencing on screen i think this is something that you'll. never feel documentary even in the title what does it mean on a practical level to colonize the cinema. i think in a very practical level i mean you know you go back to my mother's time people didn't even know what the mahdi was so a lot of her work was explaining the issues explaining the things that we face now in subsequent generations of the work of directors like take away to see who are directing films like for in georgia rabbit and having massive international success so i think that is part of the decolonized nation process there's also another aspect of it and i think that is you know for many minority in this industry you're a contract you go from job to job and it's different to be
4:40 am
a contract then it is to own your own production company or to have the resources and infrastructure to then be able to handle a bigger budget production and so instead of us being employees i think one of the issues attractive to have decolonization is actually being able to form our production companies that uphold money values but also have the infrastructure needed to make a big budget productions let me bring in christopher retaught just a couple of allopaths tell us about part of his story from his long have a look. at harmonix. was a filmmaker on the feature we. shot. with the director the ronson and most of the actors. this is the 1st time we were able to tell our own story without someone telling it for us. he is an extraordinary still
4:41 am
having 1st your mom was the 1st or so many different filmmaker 1st mom with a ton of kids that she was taking around the world making films 1st maoi female feel that all of these 1st for many decades ago we're still seeing that do you feel that new zealand right now in the indigenous from community are they beginning to be come just every day filmmakers and there's less of the 1st still happening or system a big barrier that you're just trying to forge through. that money. i mean it's actually comes down to simple representation but in the camera there's only been 3 modey women and new zealand have it directed a feature length project wow that's from 1970 2 'd to today 3 well that's it i think you can probably count the number of molly the richt is who have directed a peach willing film on both of my hand his his the one we should look up his work
4:42 am
straight away with tyco gets a lot of mentions because like is that what he says on his on saw what else is a boy what with him with your mom so tight tyke is no melt off who else should we look up and spoil the times as well i mean us i mean. i'm going back and he's almost the older generation but at least some of holies films i've ridden with famous ones will laureus was one of his films he had a bit of success in hollywood as well. tatic because he is an amazing film director but i do actually want to give a shout out to a film that's going to be coming out soon and that is the work of painfully gardner and brian graysmith they will be the next modern woman to the rick to feature here in new zealand and it's been almost 30 years since the last one was made so there's a 2 at the code direction they're making a film called cousins that the film should definitely support and one of the interesting things is despite that lack of representation if you look at the top 10
4:43 am
