About

Academy Award nominated director Taika Waititi gathered a talented crew to bring to audiences the bigger picture of life’s little moments.

“Eagle vs Shark isn’t a romantic comedy rather a slightly dark, amusing tale with a little bit of love in it,” says Waititi. “When the atmosphere is tense and uncomfortable that is when we feel the need to laugh most. The sort of humour I prefer and write comes from finding the lighter side of tragic.”
