Neil Pardington

Director [Kai Tahu, Kati Mamoe, Kati Waewae, Pākehā]

Neil Pardington began making experimental films while studying fine arts at Elam. Since then, a long collaboration with Stuart McKenzie has seen the pair both co-directing (1991 award-winner The Mouth and the Truth), and swapping director and producer roles. In 1994, Pardington’s short The Dig — the tale of an elderly couple excavating below their house — was invited into a special season of Kiwi shorts at Cannes.
