After the Waterfall
Still grieving three years after the disappearance of his four year old daughter, John has separated from his wife Ana and seems trapped forever in pain and anger. When Ana becomes pregnant to John's best friend, tensions boil to the surface.
A compelling story played out within the confines of an isolated community where everyone knows your business, but few can understand your heart.
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.
