December Shipment

About This Project

Narrative short shot on location in Auckland New Zealand, developed with the support of Script to Screen. Aroha and Debbie share a cubicle but they’re very different women, soon realising that everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. The December Shipment was completed in late 2015. From a field of nearly 4500 global applicants, the film caused Cathy to be shortlisted for The Weinstein Company and Lexus Films Short Film Competition, and for the Lexus Australia Film Fellowship.
