Hero image for Kaleidoscope - Roger Donaldson in Hollywood

Kaleidoscope - Roger Donaldson in Hollywood

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1985

One of the reasons that I looked beyond New Zealand for my filmmaking career was that there was so little happening, and that it was so difficult to make a living being a filmmaker there.
– Donaldson, on leaving New Zealand
There were a number of very influential film critics who really liked the film [Smash Palace], and talked about it a lot in the press. The industry here [in the USA] takes a lot of notice of what the critics say, and they’re always looking for new talent ... for new cheap talent.
– Roger Donaldson on Hollywood
