"No film has captured the criminality and the sheer desperation of early morning inner-city life since ONCE WERE WARRIORS until now. THE LAST SAINT is one to be celebrated"- DOMINION POST

Writer and Director, Rene Naufahu is thrilled to be able to bring the cast and the film to Wellington.

‘We have been humbled by the support for this film we have got from people all over the country and now its Wellingtons turn. Get your friends and family together and we will see you at the Paramount Theatre on the 25th’
