With an art school background, director Florian Habicht is responsible for some of our quirkiest New Zealand films. Since his breakthrough feature, the surreal Woodenhead, Habicht's films have blurred the boundaries between drama and documentary.

In this ScreenTalk, Habicht talks about:

  • His early life and art school filmmaking inspiration
  • Making short films and learning from making mistakes, experimenting and doing things his own way
  • How a would-be tourism promo evolved into the documentary Kaikohe Demolition
  • Working with Warwick Broadhead in Woodenhead and then the documentary Rubbings From a Live Man

Credits: Direction and Interview - Clare O'Leary, Camera and Editing - Leo Guerchmann
