Directed by Curious Film's Paola Morabito, the film tells the tale of a 17-year-old boy named Wolfe, who rejects his father's invitation for a boy's night out and is left to confront a passionate and forbidden lust for his father's new girlfriend.

Night Shift.jpgFrom New Zealand Curious director Zia Mandviwalla, Night Shift has been recognised with nominations for PLS Best Cinematography (by Ari Wegner) and StarNow Best Actress for actor Anapela Polataivao's portrayal of the film's main character.

Night Shift tells the story of airport cleaner Salote, who tries to make it through another long shift. She does her job, does not draw attention to herself, and carves out her survival from what commuters leave behind. Amidst the comings and goings, Salote struggles to find her way back home.
