Kiwi Cathy MacDonald spent nearly a decade in the United Kingdom. While there she won a run of awards, writing and directing promos and commercials for everyone from Disney, to the BBC. Her quirky documentary short Roger the Real Life Superhero was selected for 11 international film festivals. Since returning to New Zealand in 2012, MacDonald has made more documentaries (including Turangawaewae - A Place to Stand, which played as part of international anthology movie Other Than) and her first fiction short, office tale The December Shipment (2015).
England was amazing, but this is home and always had been. Cathy MacDonald in Metro magazine, June 2012, page 128
