Directed by Taika Waititi, who’s father is of Maori descent, the film Boy went from New Zealand Film Commission low-budgeted indie film to indigenous film festival circuits to international film festivals to the highest grossing New Zealand film ever. What, you’ve never seen it? Peep the trailer and tell me its not the greatest trailer of this year, cause you can’t.
Watch out for Taika Waititi, cause when he’s not partnering with Jemaine Clement on comedy tours or directing Flight of the Conchords, then he’s busy playing Thomas Kalmaku in the new Green Lantern movie. Choice.
