Check out the just-released work of independent filmmaker Nikki Si'ulepa and her wife and film producer Rachel Wills: Same But Different: A True New Zealand Love Story. Screening now at the Rialto Newmarket cinema in Auckland for a limited time, with more cinemas to be announced soon. The film is inspired by the love story of the couple behind the camera: Rachel, a single, working mum pursues her escalating feelings for Nikki, whom she meets at a M?ori film festival. Things don't go according to plan: Rachel's awkward first romantic attempts are followed by the return of her ex-lover, Rob. With all hope gone, it's Rachel's humanitarian efforts that grab Nikki's attention, and the two finally connect.
