Short poppies by Rhys Darby( Visual )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Short Poppies is, at its core a comedy that pays homage to the traditions of New Zealand television as much as to the New Zealand people. Filmed in the style of a current affairs spoof Short Poppies is a series of day-in-the-life exclusive interview sessions with seven unique kiwi characters. Each week respected journalist David Farrier spends a day with an ordinary person of New Zealand. The sort of person that wouldnt normally get their time in the lime light. Its about giving the everyman and woman their chance to be in the spotlight. Think Country Calendar, and the heart-warmingly earnest colour pieces of journalism that featured in the early days of television. But with the Darby twist. Rhys Darby has created seven extraordinarily ordinary New Zealand characters that sit perilously close to real life. They expose all the foibles and the endearing flaws of people just like us in towns just like ours all over the country. Remember what John Clarke did with the Fred Dagg interviews in the mid 1970s? Now we get the chance to see Rhys lovingly play homage to one of his comic heroes and this comedic genre

What we do in the shadows by Jemaine Clement( Visual )

"In 2012, New Zealand's most well-known documentarians, Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, teamed up to follow a group of Wellington-based vampires. Yes, actual, real vampires. The resulting film is a raw, unflinching look at the lives of the undead community, and no stone unturned. From hunting victims and draining their blood to more mundane activities like paying the rent and keeping the house tidy, What We Do In The Shadows documents their struggles, fears and dreams and asks the question -"If your heart is cold and dead, are you actually dead? Obviously, you are, but are you truly really DEAD dead?"--Container insert

Hello Earthlings. This is the big one. You have in your hands my award winning stand-up show recorded live from a spaceship thousands of miles from Earth. By now the planet we know and love is long gone-- but those of us that were smart enough to take my advice on fashion, conversation and dance are still alive. Congratulations we made it! If you haven't made it yet, then quickly watch this DVD and pray that it isn't the 21st of December 2012 yet (or just check a calendar). If by some tiny chance the ancient Mayan civilization got it wrong-- then I guess just carry on with your lives. Either way, love life and mock prancing horses!--Container
