For the Toronto International Film Festival we used animation to highlight ongoing talks at TIFF by directors and actors. In this spot we brought to life a story by director Taika Waititi discussing the need for unique cultures to tell their own stories. A New Zealand filmmaker and actor whose credits include directing “Thor: Ragnarok” and “What we do in the Shadows”, Taika Waititi’s talk is from an excerpt from a Q&A recorded with the release of his film "Boy" at TIFF.
