In the Zone

Film (Trailer) – 2018

Feature documentary In the Zone tells the story of American Terrance Wallace. In 2011 he launched The InZone Project; its aim was to transform the lives of disadvantaged Māori and Pasifika teens by moving them into supportive homes, in zones that enable them to receive opportunities at top Auckland schools like Auckland Grammar. Director Robyn Paterson (Finding Mercy) follows Wallace as he attempts to take the programme back to his hometown of Chicago. Paterson developed the project after winning a 2015 pitching competition at Kiwi documentary festival Doc Edge.

We are living at a time when there is extraordinary focus on difference and division between communities. When mistrust between races, cultures, and religions seems front and centre. So do we build walls, and ensure our separation? Or do we build bridges, and seek to break down barriers? Terrance Wallace is a man passionate about building bridges, and it is for this reason that I began to film his journey beginning in 2014.
