Morning Report- Doco on elderly Chinese migrants shows difficulty settling

A new documentary film called East Meets East has been released looking into the difficulties elderly Chinese migrants are facing trying to settle into NZ. The suggestion is that it’s not all that easy for the struggling migrants and that the perception is the migrants are a drain on society.

Loading Ultra-Short Documentaries- Radio New Zealand

New Zealand is well-known for making great documentaries – we like real-life stories it seems.  But they do occasionally tend to ramble. That’s not the case of our preeminent documentary initiative, the crowd-funded Loading Docs project. This year’s ultra-short documentaries have to say what they’ve got to say in less time than a pop single – around three minutes.  Simon Morris talks to two prospective film-makers, Ursula Williams – Now and Then – and Michael Weatherall – My Dog Ajax, and to the Project Manager, Nia Phipps.  Loading Docs is funded by New Zealand On Air, with support from the NZ Film Commission and Te Mangai Paho.
