AUCKLAND, Today: Preeminent Plaza Films AUNZ commercials director Paul Middleditch is a creative force behind NZ feature film Uproar, which will have its nationwide cinema release on October 5, hot on the heels of its selection for the Toronto International Film Festival this September.
The trailer was produced in association with the NZ Film Commission, Firefly Films, Caravan Carpark Films, Kismet and Kingston Productions.
It stars Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople), Rhys Darby (Hunt for the Wilderpeople), James Rolleston (Boy), Academy Award nominee Minnie Driver and newcomer Jada Fa’atui.
“We are proud to be bringing Uproar to screens across Aotearoa NZ this October. This film is full of heart, for all communities and ages.”
From award-winning directors Paul Middleditch and Hamish Bennett, Uproar is a “heartwarming” story about connection and finding your place in the world.
It is the story of 17-year-old Josh Waaka (played by Julian Dennison), and set in Dunedin in 1981.
Middleditch and Bennett said: “We are proud to be bringing Uproar to screens across Aotearoa New Zealand this October. This film is full of heart, for all communities and ages, and tells an important story that everyone will find a connection to.
“We certainly made Uproar for the big screen, and we can’t wait for you all to come together and check it out.”
