For Arts Sake - A Century of Cinema

Television (Full Length) – 1996

The reality which international film goers are getting about New Zealand, which is very hard for us as New Zealanders to understand, cope with or even believe, is the exotic thing really. How different, how exciting, how appealing. People see New Zealand movies and then they say 'oh my god, I've got to go to this place.'

Heavenly Creatures is a most exhilarating movie showing the power of imagination and the strength of a friendship, running amok a bit, but nevertheless, the amazing features of Heavenly Creatures are in fact the imagination of Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh and their special effects team.

All through the international film business people say, 'you've only got three million people in New Zealand right, 3.5 million people. Yeah, you say. So how do you come up with new talent year after year so consistently when other countries don't do it?' That's the reputation we have. It's a pretty good reputation.
