Homegrown: Works on Film 

Love, death and abandonment characterise this year's batch of shorts on film, presented by the Moving Image Center.

68 minutes

Only a handful of films each year get to support from the New Zealand Film Commission to produce 35mm screening print. Of this year's lucky few, the Moving Image Centre programmers judged these six the best. The year's selection is characterised by a boldness of vision in step with the tumult of the world beyond our shores. Films encompass dramatic themes of life, love, death and abandonment, but there is also scope for romance and forgiveness.
