Tai Aroha - Department of Corrections

We went to Hamilton recently to film this profile on Tai Aroha, a residential therapeutic programme run by Ara Poutama Aotearoa – The Department of Corrections.

It was really encouraging to see the difference this live-in programme had on the men and their partners and whanau.

I am always conscious of this responsibility of telling people's personal stories and the trust people put in us as storytellers.

They openly shared their personal stories with us and wanted their voices to be heard.
