Hweiling Ow: Scaring Kiwis Silly

From Nine To Noon, 10:07 am on 9 February 2018

Film producer Hweiling Ow is one of New Zealand's leading horror movie makers, but as for watching scary stuff herself, it terrifies her! She has likened her work to a combination of the TV shows Black Mirror and Country Calendar. Most recently, H2Ow Productions produced the Ao-Terror-oa anthology - a dark and perverse look at everything Kiwi - from Rugby in Haka Atua, the great outdoors in The Ranger or 'fun in the sun' with series closer Burn Time. Kathryn Ryan speaks with Hweiling about her career and her upbringing, after arriving in New Zealand from Malaysia at 20 years old.
