Fourteen minutes of footage of brutal warfare have been restored to Geoff Murphy's 1983 masterpiece of war, colonialism and cultural survival in New Zealand. Set in the 1870s, Utu chronicles the violent endgame between English colonial settlers of New Zealand and the Maori people they displaced and conquered. Having witnessed the massacre of his village by colonial troops, a Maori chieftain vows utu, or ritualized revenge, against the well-armed white settlers. "The ferocity of the skirmishes and the raids is played off against an arcadian beauty that makes your head swim" (Pauline Kael, The New Yorker).
