FINALISTS . 2016

A troubled boy is on a mission to amend the sorrows and make peace with his recently deceased brother.

What does it mean to be ‘Kiwi As’ for a new arrival to Aotearoa?
Our new Rongotai student (and promising private investigator), Jamal, finds out just what that means when the chocolate fish goes missing…

After being taunted by her brother’s possession of a valuable item, a young girl seeks the adventure and thrill of hunting down this elusive prize. Coming to a theatre near you, one girl goes on a trip of a lifetime.

This film focuses on the “kiwi as” tendency to not speak out about our issues around mental health and depression. It has a layered narrative which takes us into the mind of Harry and his emotions.
