About the Film:

Fresh Meat
Directed by Danny Mulheron. Aotearoa, 2012, 91 mins.

Cannibals and criminals collide in this outrageously tasty horror comedy. When the Tan gang’s prison breakout goes violently wrong, they need a hideout in a hurry. Picking the McMansion of a middle-class Maori family probably seemed like a safe bet. But how were the Tans to know that this particular family has reintroduced some very old-fashioned cuisine to their dining table? Will the Tans escape the trap, or is there gangster in the casserole tonight? Starring Once Were Warriors’ Temuera Morrison.  

Official Selection: Hawaii International Film Festival; Tribeca Film Festival

Two Cars, One Night (short)
Directed by Taika Waititi, Aotearoa, 2004, 12 mins.

In this powerful, beautifully shot black-and-white short by acclaimed director Taika Waititi (Boy), two boys and a girl meet in the parking lot of a rural pub while waiting for their parents. What at first seems to be a relationship based on rivalry soon develops into a close friendship. We learn that love can be found in the most unlikely of places.
