Ramon Te Wake (Te Rarawa) is a Webfest NZ nominated director and producer (2018, 2019) for Attitude’s Glimpse and Crips in Cars. She is one of the first trans women to present, direct and produce content in Aotearoa. With more than 17 years in the film and TV industry, Ramon has created hundreds of stories with a strong focus on Māori, queer and the marginalised as the backbone to her extensive and prolific catalogue. In 2020, Ramon appeared in New Zealand’s first trans drama Rūrangi as Ellie. Her most recent work is the much-anticipated graphic novella Ahō Wāhine, in which she reinterprets four Māori stories, Papatūānuku, Hineahuone, Hinenuitepō and Mahuika.
