Today's video slot features a story about food and loving your neighbour - to get you in the Christmas spirit! Written and produced by Dr Sapna Samant, with Amy Barber on sound design, Kimbap is also about the isolation and loneliness of a Korean 'goose' family, where the mother and daughter live in New Zealand so the daughter can go to school here.

Meanwhile, Sapna's short film Debts We Pay, which also features a beautiful performance by a young actor, is about an Indian family in Wellington and how they negotiate their lives in an alien cultural setting. Written, directed and co-produced by Sapna, Brett Mills produced the film, Aline Tran was DOP and Michelle Turner was production manager.
