Jim Moriarty

Jim Moriarty's screen career has ranged from 70s soap Close to Home and Rowley Habib's The Protestors, to starring in mock-doco The Waimate Conspiracy and playing Dad in 2009's The Strength of Water. Committed to theatre as a tool for change, he has worked on many projects involving troubled youth (eg. 2003 documentary Make or Break). His directing work includes TV's Mataku, and a stage musical of Once Were Warriors

I produce theatre, I direct theatre, I perform in stuff, and it’s all really to do with the emancipation of people, freedom and liberation of people, that’s what I’m interested in.
