VIDEO SLOT: Takeout Kids
The growth of Aotearoa’s immigrant communities has resulted in a proliferation of small family restaurants and takeaway shops run off the back of immigrant labour and love. Made for The Spinoff, Takeout Kids is a new series directed by Julie Zhu, produced by Sophie Dowson and executive produced by Amber Easby. It follows five young people growing up with lives that revolve around the family shop, and the way this impacts their own coming-of-age.
