Look out for the world premiere of Kāinga at the NZIFF 2022 🎥

The final film of the trilogy that includes critically acclaimed films Waru (NZIFF 2017) and Vai (2019), Kāinga features stories written and directed by 11 Kiwi Pan-Asian female filmmakers that chronicle the diverse, ever-changing experiences of Asians trying to make Aotearoa New Zealand their home.

Produced by a team that really believes in PASC kaupapa - Kerry Warkia, Kiel McNaughton and Shuchi Kothari (pasc co-founder) - Kāinga celebrates Asian experiences of generations past and present. Directed and/or written by what essentially feels like our whānau: Mei Lin Te Puea Hansen, Julie Zhu, Asuka Sylvie, Mia Maramara, Michelle Ang, Nahyeon Lee, Shreya Gejji, Yamin Tun, Ghazaleh Golbaksh, HASH, and Angeline Loo.
