A New Zealand artist is in the running for one of the British art world's top awards, the Turner Prize. Luke Willis Thompson has been nominated for a film featuring Diamond Reynolds, an American woman who live-streamed police shooting her boyfriend Philando Castile during a routine traffic stop in 2016.

Art gallery owner Danae Mossman told RNZ reporter Jessie Chiang the nomination is a big deal.
