In 2016 short film Lani's Space beat hundreds of other entries to make the short list for CineSpace, a contest where filmmakers are encouraged to use actual NASA footage. At the heart of the film is the close relationship between space obsessed Lani (Roman Amosa) and her Dad Manu (Sateki Finau-Baas). Lani's love of space travel is tied into the loss at the heart of her family. Made by young filmmakers Harriett Maire and Ferris Bradley, Lani's Space went on to win a special category award at the Houston Cinema Arts Festival.
"My father was the cinematographer and Ferris' mother was the art director. It was really special to have our loved ones so closely involved in helping craft a story inherently about family.– Director Harriett Maire in a Newshub interview, 1 November 2016
