Christine Parker

Director, Writer

Former magazine editor and continuity person Christine Parker made her name as a writer/director with three distinctive short films: One Man's Meat, in which Donogh Rees commits murder; Hinekaro Goes on a Picnic and Blows up another Obelisk, in which Rima Te Wiata has destructive supernatural powers; and bi-sexual romance Peach. Parker made her feature debut in 1999 with romantic drama Channelling Baby, starring Danielle Cormack and Kevin Smith.

I think it is very important to offer people a good story with lots of twists and turns; to offer surprises so that they’re not second-guessing the plot, and the unexpected always happens. Christine Parker on Channelling Baby
