Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says she was not consulted by filmmakers regarding “They Are Us”.
The US-backed film “They Are Us” has been criticized by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand as poorly timed and focused on the wrong subject. According to Prime Minister Jacinda she was not consulted by the filmmakers.
“In my view, which is a personal view, it feels very soon and very raw for New Zealand, And while there are so many stories that should be told at some point, I don’t consider mine to be one of them, they are the community’s stories, the families’ stories” Ardern told TVNZ
The movie, set to depict Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s widely praised response to the Christchurch terrorist attacks, garnered immense backlash in the New Zealand Muslims Community, with community leaders criticizing the project for pushing a “white saviour” narrative. The National Islamic Youth Association’ petition calling for the production to be shut down has gathered more than 58,000 signatures.
According to The Guardian, Philippa Campbell, New Zealand producer announced her resignation from the project stating she had listened to the concerns raised and heard the strength of people’s views. She further stated that she was in agreement that the events of March 15, 2019 are too raw for film at the time being and did not wish to be involved with a project that is causing such distress.
Prime Minister Jacinda was widely praised for her prompt action regarding the worst terror attack in modern New Zealand history where mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch left 50 dead and 40 injured.
