The Maori Merchant of Venice (Māori: Te Tangata Whai Rawa o Weniti) is a 2002 New Zealand drama film in the Māori language (with English subtitles), directed by Don Selwyn.

The play The Merchant of Venice was translated into Māori in 1945 by Pei Te Hurinui Jones, and his translation is used for the film. It is the first Māori-language film adaptation of any of William Shakespeare’s plays. The film was shot in Auckland, but set in 16th century Venice.

    I would like to thank the creators of this project and MIT for making this material available to us. As an instructor at the University of Toronto, I’ve found it immensely helpful in designing and delivering my courses. Adding material from Africa would make the project even more successful. Regards.
