A film by Judah Finnigan

Selected for NZ Best 2018 at NZIFF 2018 | Show Me Shorts 2018

**WINNER OF The inaugural Creative New Zealand Emerging Talent Award 2018

Cinematography by Matt Henley

β€œIt's astounding that Charmer is Judah Finnigan's first foray into film: his direction is assured and his writing is sharp as hell. Matt Henley's cinematography and Chris Ulutupu's art direction sees the screen dripping and glowing with unexpected colour, and Robyn Malcolm and Stephen Lovatt deliver delightful and nuanced performances as two middle-aged strangers on a first date. It's a remarkable first film, and we're looking forward to seeing what Judah makes next.” - JURY CITATION
