On March 27 1984, a bomb exploded in Wellington Trades Hall. Caretaker, Ernie Abbott, was killed instantly.

This DVD is a memorial to Ernie Abbott.

Additional Description More Details

For the Union Movement, the bombing was not simply the act of a deranged individual. It was the logical outcome of a climate of hostility that had been deliberately fostered and directed against workers for a decade.

This DVD, commissioned by the Wellington Trades Council, is a hard-hitting look at this hatred campaign.

Cast in the local pub, amongst a group of friends, “Tankbusters” became a first in several respects.

Additional Description More Details

Geoff Murphy’s “first film with sound”, the first NZ drama to sell into international markets… and the first film to use the “mumblefuck” acting style. Opting to break all the rules of the then conventional stage to screen acting style (possibly to the resentment of stage-to-screen actors of the time), the cast was led by the most experienced (Stephen O’Rourke) in a how-not-to acting class. This was later adopted as a new standard for New Zealand dramas.

Shot on weekends over a nine month period, this now classic film caused a sensation on a budget of $4000.

Tankbusters first screened on NZ Television New Years Eve 1970.

The audition room is a minefield for three Asian actresses who are expected to be Asian in ways they’re not completely comfortable with.
