Mahana is a 2016 New Zealand drama film directed by Lee Tamahori, and written by John Collee, based on the novel Bulibasha: King of the Gypsies by Witi Ihimaera. Mahana tells the story of two Maori families, the Mahanas and the Poatas, who are bitter rivals.

The two families clash constantly, in sport, in cultural contests and, finally, in the Golden Fleece competition to find the greatest shearing gang in New Zealand

I wrote Bulibasha, King of the Gypsies in six months in France. As soon as I started, the story or, rather, stories of the ‘gypsy’ Smiler family, our shearing history, sporting and cultural kapa haka group came up and out of me without hitting the sides. More to the point, they did, the colourful members of my huge, rambunctious, larger-than-life clan. Among them was my grandad, Pera Punahamoa, like an Italian Godfather, and my grandmother, Teria, his beautiful and refined donna.

I have enjoyed this author before but this novel is rambling and below his capabilities. I likely won't read more of his work now.
