"A South Pacific Pictures production"

"Based on the original work Medicine woman"

"The original novella, Medicine woman, has been rewritten and expanded by Witi Ihimaera to become White Lies. It has also evolved into a screenplay by director and screenwriter Dana Rotberg, which has been made into a film by South Pacific Pictures. Thus this book offers an insight into the process of adapting work, as well as offering new versions of this potent story. The book contains the novella, plus a screenplay, film stills and commentary on writing and movie making".
