From the Producers of Whale Rider, White Lies is about the nature of identity: those who deny it and those who strive to protect it. WHITE LIES is written and directed by Dana Rotberg and based on the novella Medicine Woman by Witi Ihimaera. Paraiti (Whirimako Black) is a medicine woman. She is the healer and midwife of her rural, tribal people she believes in life. But new laws are in force prohibiting unlicensed healers. On a rare trip to the city, she is approached by Maraea (Rachel House), the servant of a wealthy woman, Rebecca (Antonia Prebble), who seeks her knowledge and assistance in order to hide a secret which could destroy Rebeccas position in European settler society. If the secret is uncovered a life may be lost, but hiding it may also have fatal consequences. So Paraiti, Maraea and Rebecca become players in a head-on clash of beliefs, deception and ultimate salvation.
