Warp Films Shopping World Premiere at Sundance Film Festival

Shopping:
World Premiere at Sundance Film Festival

 

The debut feature film from New Zealand filmmakers Mark Albiston & Louis Sutherland, and second feature from Warp Films Australia, has been selected for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The film will have its world premiere as part of the World Dramatic Competition. 


Synopsis

Set in New Zealand 1981, muscle cars, racial tensions and a thieving bird all inform the small town life of half-Samoan brothers Willie and Solomon.  After a chance encounter with charismatic thief Bennie and his close-knit gang of ‘shoppers’, Willie is seduced into a criminal world that allows him to escape mounting tensions with his volatile father.  But as Bennie’s hold over him grows, Willie finds himself in over his head; and when Solomon is left to fend for himself at home, Willie’s two worlds collide with shattering consequences.
