John Barnett

Producer

Since the 1970s John Barnett has brought a host of uniquely Kiwi stories to local and international screens, from Fred Dagg and Footrot Flats, to Whale Rider, Sione's Wedding and Outrageous Fortune. As boss of production company South Pacific Pictures for 24 years, he was a driving force behind some of our landmark television dramas and feature films.

It took a while because not everybody could see that it was going to have a wide appeal — some people told me it would be very limited but I never had any doubt. John Barnett on Sione’s Wedding
