From Sunday Morning, 7:20 am on 6 August 2017

A film by two Auckland Unitec students has won the best short film at the NZ International Film Festival awards. "Waiting" was written by Samuel Kamu and directed by Amberley-Jo Aumua. The Inspiration for their film came from Samuel's West Auckland childhood and days spent outside the dairy - and the film-makers says it's a story of the importance of brotherhood, friendship and family. The film is also heading to Toronto, the first short film by New Zealand students to make the cut at the prestigious festival. Amberley-Jo talks to Wallace.
