The New York International Children's Film Festival is thrilled to present a special 15th anniversary screening of the acclaimed film Whale Rider at JCC Manhattan. Nominated for an Academy Award® for her role in the film, Keisha Castle-Hughes offers a winning portrayal of Pai, a determined young twelve-year-old who hopes to train in the ways of her Maori people to become its next leader. With remarkable grace and courage, Pai summons the strength to both challenge and embrace a thousand years of tradition in order to fulfill her destiny in this visually stunning and timeless film.
