'White Lies'
"White Lies," the Maori language feature film written and directed by Dana Rotberg, has been submitted by New Zealand for the Foreign Language Oscar at the 86th Academy Awards.

The film, which centers on a tribal midwife and healer who clashes with European settler society, stars Antonia Prebble, Rachel House and marks the acting debut of New Zealand Maori recording artist Whirimako Black. 

Based on the novella "Medicine Woman" by Witi Ihimaera, author of "Whale Rider," "White Lies" opened wide in New Zealand on June 27. It will play TIFF this week in the Contemporary World Cinema selection.

Other recent submissions for the Foreign Language category include Singapore's "Ilo Ilo" and Germany's "Two Lives."
