Hodaka, a high school boy who moves from his isolated island home to the city of Tokyo, who immediately becomes broke! After finally finding work at a shady occult magazine, the sky rains every day until amidst the hustle and bustle of the big city, he meets a young woman called Hina. She lives a cheerful life with her younger brother, but also has a certain power: to stop the rain and clear the sky.
Simba idolises his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub's arrival. Scar, Mufasa's brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba's exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Camino Skies is the debut feature documentary from emerging Australian/NZ filmmaking team Noel Smyth and Fergus Grady.
Independently shot over 42 days, the film follows the journey of six strangers as they embark on the historic ‘Camino de Santiago’ - an historic 800km pilgrimage that starts in France and works its way through Spain before arriving in the city of Santiago de Compostela.
Each of the characters have their own reasons for walking but ultimately come together to work through heartbreak and defy their physical ability.
Dealing with themes of loss and hope, the film is an uplifting look at what it means to live with grief.
Premiering at the 2019 Newport Beach Film Festival, the film went on to make its Australasian premiere at Doc Edge Film Festival where it received awards for ‘Best NZ Director’ and ‘Best NZ Emerging Filmmaker’ citing that "The Directors ability to capture intimate, poignant moments with subtlety and restraint while carefully crafting a narrative was both engaging and genuinely moving."
The film will have its New Zealand and Australian theatrical release in July / August 2019 with rest of the world releases set for late 2019.
“Few people know how to take a walk. The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes, old shoes, an eye for nature, good humor, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence and nothing too much.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
