In this second feature from filmmaker Martin Sagadin, two women inch towards romance until the arrival of a stranger seeking a bed for the night changes the dynamic. Sagadin's adopted city of Christchurch is like a fourth character in the story; as the women (played by Alayne Dick and Illinois-born Hannah Herchenbach) walk and talk, the sunlit streets of the city take on different moods. Sagadin's experimental feature Oko na Roki was part of the 2018 NZ International Film Festival. Sagadin has also directed videos for Christchurch musicians Marlon Williams and Aldous Harding.
The whole film happens in one breath. I hope it feels like the film was made effortlessly...like it just appeared out of thin air.– Writer/director Martin Sagadin on Spring Interlude, Stuff, 17 July 2019
World premiere on 18 August 2019 at Christchurch's Lumière Cinema 2, as part of the Christchurch arm of the 2019 NZ International Film Festival
