Taika and Chelsea attended the Wellington premiere of a New Zealand film, Shopping.
Wellington’s hottest stars braved a chilly night for the premiere of local film Shopping at the Embassy Theatre.
Family, friends and stars such as Bret McKenzie, Ladi6, Oscar Kightley and Taika Waititi mingled at the opening night of Kapiti film-making duo Mark Albiston and Louis Sutherland’s first feature film. […] Waititi and partner Chelsea Winstanley said that though neither had worked with Albiston or Sutherland, both were long-time “admirers from afar”.
It looks like Taika enjoyed the film and thinks you should watch it too.
Please go see Shopping, it’s really good and I’m not in it – which might be the single best reason to go. i.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/…

Actually, I’m not surprised the film is really good. I love Albiston and Sutherland’s short film Six Dollar Fifty Man, so there was a big chance they would do something amazing for their first feature. I look forward to having the opportunity to watch Shopping.
Here are some photos from the premiere,
