Film Info

Taika Waititi is back with a fulminant new film which takes you on a hilarious hunt through NZ wilderness in search of an unusual couple: misfit kid Ricky Baker (Julian Dennison) and grumpy uncle Hec (Sam Neill). Full of nerdy but lovely characters, funny dialogues, a great soundtrack and a short appearance of the director as priest, this film broke the NZ box office record.


Additional Info

The film was introduced by His Excellency Rod Harris, New Zealand’s Ambassador to Germany and was followed by a reception with wine and pies sponsored by the New Zealand Embassy. The screening was followed by the announcement of this year’s winners of the Down Under Berlin Audience Awards for “Best Film” and “Best Short Film”.
