New Zealand 1996 Centenary of Cinema




Issue date 7 August 1996

New Zealand Post to commemorate the 100 years of New Zealand Cinema has issued four stamps featuring some of the first New Zealand films.

The first public screening of motion pictures in New Zealand took place at the Opera House, Auckland on 13 October 1896. 

Single 40c 'Hinemoa' gummed stamp.

Produced in 1914 by George Tarr, and based on the story of Hinemoa and Tūtānekai, Hinemoa was New Zealand's first feature film. The film was shot in eight days in Rotorua with a budget of £50. Despite the onset of World War One, Hinemoa was very popular and shown all over New Zealand. Sadly no copies are known to exist today.

Single 80c 'Broken Barrier' gummed stamp.

John O'Shea, who wrote the script for the 1952 film says that at the time it was considered by many to be controversial. The film was built around the story of a romance between a young Pākehā (caucasian) journalist and a young Māori woman, a subject which was not tolerated by many quarters of New Zealand society at the time.

Single $1.50 'Goodbye Pork Pie' gummed stamp.

This classic 'car chase' film by Geoff Murphy was released in 1981 to rave reviews throughout New Zealand. People were captivated by the tale of two young men journeying from Kaitaia to Invercargill in a stolen yellow mini. Overseas audiences also enjoyed it - for its time it was the most successful New Zealand film offered to the international market.

Single $1.80 'Once Were Warriors' gummed stamps.

The movie that was destined to become the highest grossing New Zealand movie ever, exploded onto screens in 1994. With the central theme of domestic violence and abuse, it is a disturbing and contentious film. The film's violence is not gratuitous. Rather, the images attempt to offer an understanding of the causes of the conflict. The film was based on New Zealand author Alan Duff's novel of the same name, and directed by Lee Tamahori.

The stamps also featured scratch and win tabs which allowed buyers of the stamps to win a free trip to Hollywood, Hoyts Movie tickets, NZD 10 account with the New Zealand Philatelic Bureau and Cinema First day covers as prizes.
