Ian Mune

Aside from being a prolific actor, NZ screen legend Ian Mune has made behind-the-scenes contributions to many landmarks of Kiwi film and television. His writing career ranges from New Zealand's first TV serials to Goodbye Pork Pie. Mune's work as director includes the classics Came a Hot Friday and The End of the Golden Weather.

In the end, the important stories are told by people who have to tell them. If they don't have to, then maybe they shouldn't.
