Director Florian Habicht is responsible for some of New Zealand's quirkiest films. Habicht made his breakthrough in 2003 with the surreal Woodenhead. Since then, his features have blurred the boundaries between documentary and drama.
In this ScreenTalk, Habicht talks about:
- His early life and Elam Art School
Making short films and learning from making mistakes, experimenting and doing things his own way
How a would-be tourism film evolved into demolition derby documentary Kaikohe Demolition
Working with theatre director Warwick Broadhead on Woodenhead, and 2008 documentary Rubbings From a Live Man
