Neighbourhood - Hastings (Series One, Episode Eight)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2012

Hastings-bred former All Black Josh Kronfeld returns to the 'fruitbowl' of New Zealand to meet immigrants, in this series celebrating diversity. Adversity and sadness are key themes in this episode; an Indian "untouchable" caste family face being separated, after the parents overstayed, while Bosnian rapper Genocide draws on his war-ravaged childhood for inspiration. On a lighter note, Zimbawee-born Sandy Densem creates art using a mollusc shell design popular in her home country, and a South African family keeps tradition alive by making and selling boerewors (sausages) at markets. 

The fear that you feel is something that you never forget; the fear when you know somebody is actually out to kill you. It's definitely not a nice feeling.
– Hastings rapper Genocide (aka Jusuf Dzilic) reflects on his childhood in war-torn Bosnia
