POI E: THE STORY OF OUR SONG (2016)
Starring Dalvanius Prime, Ngoi Pēwhairangi, The Pātea Māori Club, Taika Waititi, Stan Walker and The Topp Twins. Directed by Tearepa Kahi.

‘Poi E’, a simple song with a catchy beat released 32 years ago, has become New Zealand’s unofficial national anthem. With humour, energy and emotion, the movie 'Poi E' is the story of how that iconic song gave pride to generations of New Zealanders. From Taika Waititi giving Stan Walker his quirky take on life in the 1980s to Patea Maori Club members’ straight-talking and funny memories of the song’s visionary originator Dalvanius Prime, director Tearepa Kahi (Mt Zion) captures a unique story that taps into the heart of the nation.
WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS (2014)
Starring Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Jonny Brugh, Stuart Rutherford, Rhys Darby, Ben Fransham and Cori Gonzalez Macuer. Directed by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi.

Flatmates Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are three vampires who are just trying to get by in modern society; from paying rent and sticking to the housework roster to trying to get invited in to nightclubs, they're just like anyone else - except they're immortal and must feast on human blood. They have one more flatmate, 8000 year-old Petyr who epitomises the film's title: he sleeps in the basement, literally in The Shadows.

When Petyr turns 20-something human hipster Nick into a vampire, the guys must teach him the ropes and guide him through his newfound eternal life. In return, they are forced to learn a thing or two about modern society, fashions, technology, and the Internet. But it's the introduction of Nick's human friend, Stu, that really changes the vampire's lives and attitudes towards the ever-changing world around them.

When Stu's life is threatened, the vamps show us that maybe humans are worth fighting for, and that even though your heart may be cold and dead, it doesn't mean you can't feel anything.
