2 Films, Much Praise
Taika Waititi’s acclaimed short film Two Cars, One Night was nominated for an Oscar at this year’s awards. It is now touring the US alongside fellow nominees as part of an Oscar 2005 shorts package distributed by Apollo Films. The Boston Globe picks 2 Cars as one of the best of the bunch, praising Waititi’s ability to “[humorously capture] a universe of preadolescent attraction, in which boy and girl go from vulgar to sweet.” Waititi’s second film, Tama Tu, received an honourable mention at this year’s Sundance Festival.
