The credits for this feature film.
We wanted the kind of rawness you get with non-actors who are just really being themselves.– Producer Fiona Copland on casting first-time actors in many of the key roles
After searching the whole of the North Island and seeing thousands and thousands of people, most of the main cast ended up coming from that area [the Hokianga], which was fantastic.– Director Armagan Ballantyne on the cast being from the same era as where the film was shot
They are more than I could ever have hoped for. I do like writing for children, but it's a big thing for them to sustain a feature film, and these kids did wonderful work.– Scriptwriter Briar Grace-Smith on The Strength of Water's young lead actors, Hato Paparoa and Melanie Mayall-Nahi
