Quote:
"The global Indigenous community is super-connected on the festival circuit. I met Taika [Waititi] at Sundance 2004, when we both had shorts there. Around the time we were looking for funding [for Night Raiders], I reached out to Taika and asked if he'd consider being an EP [executive producer] and he said, 'Absolutely.' I wanted an Indigenous producer partner, and we met with Ainsley Gardiner, who produced Taika's early movies. I had the idea of expressing on screen the solidarity that's there between the communities."
