Taiki Waititi's Boy

Taika Waititi‘s Boy is another film that I had high expectations for. Waititi’s indie comedy Eagle vs. Shark (which featured a pre-Conchords Jemaine Clement) was one of my favorite films from the 2007 Sundance Film Festival (I was even quoted on the international DVD cover).

Taiki Waititi's Boy

Taiki Waititi‘s indie comedy Eagle vs. Shark (which featured a pre-Conchords Jemaine Clement) was one of my favorite films from the 2007 Sundance Film Festival (I was even quoted on the international DVD cover). Waititi returns to Sundance in 2010 with Boy, which will screen in competition as one of this year’s 14 films were selected from 1,022 international narrative feature submissions.

The  Te-Whanau-a-Apanu filmmaker’s new film tells the story of an 11-year-old Boy and his little brother Rocky who must reconcile reality with the fantasy dad they created in their imagination after their father returns home after many years away. Originally titled Volcano, the film stars Taika Waititi, James Rolleston, and Te Aho Eketone. Check out photos from the film, and the trailer, embedded after the jump.
