Taika’s films make a career in diplomacy

Three films directed by Taika Waititi are in a catalogue of 23 New Zealand feature and short films available for overseas screenings organised by New Zealand’s diplomatic posts abroad. The catalogue has been launched by The Ministry for Culture & Heritage, in partnership with the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Tourism New Zealand, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise and the New Zealand Film Commission.
