Tits on a Bull, a short film by Tim Worrall with Hikoi NZ and Velvetstone Media is having its premiere on 5th March at the Tampere Film Festival in Finland.
The film written and directed by Tim Worrall (Ngai Tuhoe) and produced by Lara Northcroft (Te Arawa, Tuwharetoa, Tainui) and Piripi Curtis (Ngati Pikiao, Ngati Rongomai) tells the story of inseparable rugby mates, whose friendship is tested when one begins a romance with the team captain.
This well-written, engaging story features fully realised characters and sharp biting dialogue and sees award-winning actor Roy Billing team up with Ngawaea Taia and Maria Walker.
“It’s Maori, Pakeha, rural, gay, straight, funny, real” lots of good reasons to make and SEE it.
The film will be competing in the international section of the festival. The NZ Film Commission is sending both Mr Worrall and Mr Curtis over to attend.
The team have received generous support from local Rotorua businesses including Burger Fuel; Zippy Central; Rydges Hotel; The Mud Hut; Hirepool Rotorua; Rongomaipapa Marae; Villa Productions; Global Velocity and the Rotorua Civic Arts Trust.
