Maori actor and director Rachel House is about to add screenwriter and film maker to her impressive CV. She's receiving a Ramai Hayward Directors' Scholarship for wahine Maori from the New Zealand Film Commission, to make her first feature film. Just last month Rachel became an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit and last year she was co-awarded the Women in Film and Television Mana Wahine award, along with Briar Grace Smith. She talks to Lynn Freeman about her feature film dream.
