Taika Waititi: Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Hosted by

In 2005, director Taika Waititi’s adaptation of the novel Wild Pork and Watercress started as a much darker piece. Revisiting the work years later, however, allowed Taika to realize that comedy indeed prevails and he took the film The Hunt for the Wilderpeople in a different direction, while paying homage to the adventurous spirit of New Zealand. Behind films like What We Do In The Shadows and Eagle vs Shark, Taika Waititi shares the importance of humor through life’s tough times and dissects an artist’s ultimate quest for immortality.
