June 2006 - Golden Goblet Award for Best Music - Shanghai International Film Festival

Karl Jenkins states "Essentially, the music reflects the two cultures that pervade the film; the native [Maori] and the British, which in this instance is predominantly Irish. We've tried to stay away from the obvious 'haka' route making the native-sound more universally tribal and indefinable. The Irish element has a strong Celtic feel but I have endeavoured to use musical leit motifs [fragments of theme] depicting differing characters and ideas, from both sides of the divide, interweave, sometimes in the same cue".
