The Dark Horse Opened NZIFF 2014 in Auckland and Wellington

The Dark Horse opened NZIFF in Auckland on 17 July at the Civic Theatre and Wellington on 25 July at the Embassy Theatre. Directed by James Napier Robertson, and starring Cliff Curtis (Whale Rider, Once Were Warriors) and James Rolleston (Boy), The Dark Horse tells the story of the late Genesis Potini, the Gisborne-based chess champion who overcame mental illness to mentor youth on the East Coast.

Every year we look forward to celebrating and launching the work of our home grown filmmakers at NZIFF and 2014 was no exception.
