I want to die.
– The graffiti message that kick-starts the plot
The Graffiti of Mr Tupaia offered the very exciting prospect of telling a dramatic story almost entirely in pictures: in sympathy with the core theme of human connection (and failure to communicate).
– Director Christopher Dudman
I liked being privy to the silent, often lonely, world of an immigrant school cleaner who is taken for granted and almost invisible to those around him. I liked watching him come out of his shell.
– Director Christopher Dudman
Graffiti is nearly a silent film. It was my first go at writing a screenplay, and I liked the challenge of being forced to think about writing a story visually.
– Writer Paul Stanley Ward
