New film "Bub" to show at Toronto indigenous film festival

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:32 pm on 21 October 2019

New Zealand tends to punch above its weight when it comes to making movies ... and the next generation of film-makers are no different.

Oriwa Hakaraia and Te Mahara Tamehana are both 16 years old, and are the co-writers and co-directors of short film Bub - which is showing at the imagineNATIVE Film and Media Arts Festival in Toronto ...

That makes them - as far as we know - the youngest New Zealand directors ever to have a film showing at a non-youth film festival.

Oriwa joins us in the Auckland studio to explain a bit more about it.
