Venice Film Festival.
A Wellington writer and director
has received a special mention
for his feature film at the Venice
Tusi Tamasese, of Berham-
pore, has just returned from
Venice, where his film The Ora-
tor premiered as one of 52 in the
Orizzonti (new trends in cinema)

[I'm] very honoured to be
Samoan-born Tamasese went
to university in Hamilton before
moving to Wellington in 2000.
He wrote the script for The
Orator as part of a course at Vic-

[We] didn't expect to win but we
got a few prizes. We didn't
expect that either.''
The Orator opens in New
Zealand on October 6.
