Campaign, the second film directed by Tony Sutorius, won sellout screenings at the 1999 NZ Film Festival. The documentary chronicled an early MMP election campaign. Sutorius went on to make another feature-length documentary, this time about trade unionist Helen Kelly. Sutorius runs Porirua company Unreal Films, whose diet of educational films encompasses numerous elections across Australasia.
If Tony calls with a project I try to be available because of his clear integrity to his kaupapa, and commitment to community and social justice. He's trained in philosophy and always thinks beyond the surface, which means his work resonates strongly with people. For me that's the best head to work with. Editor Annie Collins
