Excerpt from article by Robert Hull, Quiet Earth:
“Director Louise Leitch’s 12-minute New Zealand-set movie, Whakatiki, is the perfect example of what a short film can achieve. Not only is it a great calling card for her artistic skills but it’s also a beautiful, beguiling and evocative film that avoids the trap too many short films fall into – of being deliberately obscure.
The sumptuous visuals (top marks to DoP Martyn Williams) and pitch-perfect score (by Tom McLeod) set the tone for a charming short with a warm heart that’s all about the power that lies within us – no matter how deep down it’s buried.”
