The Dark Horse (2014)

  • Drama
  • 2h 4m

Directed and written by: James Napier Robertson

Starring an extraordinary cast Cliff Curtis (Whale Rider and Once Were Warriors), James Rolleston (Boy and The Dead Lands) and Kirk Torrance (Outrageous Fortune) The Dark Horse is an inspiring true story based on the life of a charismatic, brilliant but little-known New Zealand Hero and Chess champion - Genesis Potini (Gen).

The Dark Horse is a provocative, emotionally-charged drama about a man who searches for the courage to lead, despite his own adversities - finding purpose and hope in passing on his gift to the children in his community.
