The Power of Music (Te Kaha o Te Waiata) - Short Film | NZ On Screen

Auckland reggae band Herbs could have released their new album in the comfortable confines of an Auckland nightclub. Instead, they chose to travel to Ruatoria — a troubled and divided East Coast town where turmoil surrounding a Rastafarian sect had resulted in assaults, kidnappings and firebombed churches. Lee Tamahori and John Day's documentary captures an emotional experience for band and locals as they meet at Mangahanea marae in an attempt to shift the focus from disunity to harmony. This footage also yielded the memorable Sensitive to a Smile music video.
Jo Te'o's insight:

Spot the horse and kid noses coming through the door!

Noise Control - Short Film | NZ On Screen

This Simmonds Brothers short film tells tells the story of Raumati South Kindergarten's beloved — but ill-fated — rooster. The early-rising hard-rocking cockerel's waking up of the neighbourhood sees complaints made to the council, and dog ranger Don Wolff (literally animated!) is assigned to the case. The tragi-comic saga is shot in the Simmonds Bro's distinctive 'documation' style: using 2D animation and audio to portray real-life events. The 2001 shooting made national news and Paul Holmes' and Carol Hirschfield's coverage features alongside local reaction.
Jo Te'o's insight:

So this is mostly just funny - and that's the point.  We need to have a laugh at our 'problems' every now and then.

The Six Dollar Fifty Man - Short Film | NZ On Screen

In Six Dollar Fifty Man eight-year-old Andy’s make-believe superhero world gets a reality check: he has to confront playground bullies and the headmaster in order to rescue his pride, and his only friend, Mary. The gutsy outsider’s playground trials were inspired by filmmakers Mark Albiston's and Louis Sutherland’s Kapiti Coast 70s upbringing. The film was a breakout festival hit: amongst a haul of awards it collected in its brown satchel were a Sundance win and special distinctions at Cannes and Berlin. It was long-listed for the 2011 Academy Awards.
