Richard Riddiford

Director, Producer

Richard Riddiford's documentary work spans finance, politics, history and the arts. He has also directed and co-written three dramatic features — Peter Hayden/Judy McIntosh romance Arriving Tuesday, 1989 thriller Zilch!, and trapped on a rooftop romance Flamingo (2020). Riddiford is a director and producer, often taking on both roles at once. His CV includes feature-length Edmund Hillary documentary Before Everest, two-part stock market documentary Class of '87, and Joe Bennett's Guide to the Corridors of Power.

The film is well-paced, with warmth and wit cut through by moments of bitter anger, and the love and hikoi story ines are skillfully interwoven. Helen Martin on Richard Riddiford’s first feature Arriving Tuesday, in the book New Zealand Film 1912 – 1996
