New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi’s comedy-drama Boy (2010) that explores the complexity of familial dysfunction and hero worship through a Māori (indigenous people of New Zealand) perspective. Boy challenges the conventional familial framework and questions the notions of power, intellect and responsibility that are typically associated with masculinity and fatherhood. The film utilises Boy’s imagination and the character of Alamein to comically reinforce and question dominant gender ideology.
