Palmerston North film-makers

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 16 July 2010

They say art imitates life, but in the case of two Palmerston North film-makers, life imitates art. Pere and Meihana Durie wanted to make a film about Joe Warbrick, the captain of the 1888 New Zealand Natives rugby team that toured Britain and Australia. They got their funding, made a short film and it's just won second prize at the Montreal First People's Film Festival in Canada.
