About

After the Waterfall was filmed in and around Piha, a small settlement on Auckland’s wild West Coast, in the North Island of New Zealand, during April and May 2009.

A powerful and haunting tale of human resilience, After the Waterfall is the debut feature from award-winning New Zealand writer/director Simone Horrocks, with actor Antony Starr (Outrageous Fortune, In My Father’s Den) in his first lead in a feature film. 

The screenplay was written by Horrocks, and is based on UK writer Stephen Blanchard’s 1999 novel The Paraffin Child.
