Tits on a Bull

Short Film (Full Length) – 2015

This award-winning short revolves around a Māori women’s rugby team. Rising star Phoenix (newcomer Ngawaea Taia) has to negotiate motherhood, her mateship with the crusty old coach (veteran Roy Billing), and her feelings for the captain (Maria Walker). Directed by Tim Worrall, and filmed in his Rotorua hometown, the short was one of six selected by director Christine Jeffs for 'New Zealand’s Best' at the 2015 NZ International Film Festival. Jeffs praised the film as "realistic and full of feeling". Worrall won Best Short Script at the 2015 SWANZ (NZ Writers Guild) Awards.

The narrative skillfully takes us to the heart of the relationships. Realistic and full of feeling. Refreshing.
– Director Christine Jeffs, on selecting Tits on a Bull as one of six films in the 'New Zealand's Best' section of the 2015 NZ International Film Festival
