Jess Feast

Director [Ngāti Raukawa]

Jess Feast's documentaries have covered everything from Berlin and nuns to the Flight of the Conchords. Cowboys & Communists examined cultural conflicts in post-cold war Berlin via an American-themed bar which was too loud for the residents upstairs. Her breakout hit Gardening with Soul follows a year in the life of a vivacious nonagenarian nun. It was named Best Documentary of 2013 at New Zealand's Moa Film Awards.

Now is the time to record these stories. For me it was important to record a story that I had never heard before ... and a lot of Germans had never heard it. Jess Feast on her documentary Cowboys and Communists
