Tiger Country is a raw realistic and darkly comic police drama set in the wild untamed suburbs of a New Zealand city.

Additional Description More Details

The drama centres on two police buddies and the ways they deal with the life and death issues that have become commonplace in their working lives. It also focuses on their relationships with those that inhabit their world but have little idea of the grim and seamy side of human nature they regularly confront.

The title Tiger Country reflects the fact that police work is tough, it’s dangerous, and delves into uncharted territory.

Tiger Country was written by writer and humorist Tom Scott, in association with former policeman, District Commander and Head of the Armed Offender Squad (now turned writer), Grant O’Fee.

A 90-minute telefeature following the fortunes of Detective Senior Sergeant Tony ‘Horse’ Radiscich, and his young team of Detective Constables, who patrol the suburbs of a large New Zealand city. Times are tough and there is increasing friction between the ‘haves and have nots’. Keeping a lid on it all isn’t easy since the police are also on the receiving end of funding cutbacks and decreased resources.

The Sunshine Man… if only we could see what he sees!

Additional Description More Details

For just one easy payment, you too can escape the disappointment and heartache of your existence. For a limited time only, The Sunshine Man offers you the golden opportunity to see life as he does!

But just remember ‘sometimes somethings, just aren’t what they seem,’ and after watching this curious dark comedy, you may think twice before hanging up on a salesperson.

From emerging director, Peter Tonks, this film is a visual treat with performances to match, and beautifully accompanied by Rhian Sheehan’s haunting soundtrack.

“The Sunshine Man is an expertly put together dark little parable. The film manages to be both whimsical and perverse, and that’s a neat trick for any film maker to pull off.”
Graeme Tuckett. National Radio, Dominion Post.

Year: 2000

Chiefly the creation of Wellingtonian writer/producer Ross Bevan, this hits hard as a raw study of three career-junkies ‘led’ by a hypnotically nasty Brian Sargent.

Additional Description More Details

Impressive in its twisted psychology, great performances and sordid details, this weaves a thriller-plot into the bargain, initiated when a messy homicide catches the attention of the police and underworld heavies. Thick with expletives and carrying the authentic vibe of someone who has ‘really been there’.
