Death porn film makers want $20 million off taxpayers for their “love letter to Jacinda”

Stuff reports:

Less than two months​ after March 15, the New Zealand Film Commission was in talks with Hollywood producers looking to make movies about Christchurch’s terrorist attack.

The commission offered its support, and stayed in contact – even coordinating and offering advice as it came time to go public with the project.

What is wrong with these people? Just two months after 51 people are slaughtered and you are already working on a film about it.

The commission understood the film was a “love letter to Jacinda Ardern and the two mosques”. However, when the script leaked this month, families from the mosque attacks said its details were “worse than the terrorist’s livestream”.

The draft script is a love letter tp Jacinda, and one that may cost taxpayers $20 million. It says a lot about the Film Commission that they didn’t see any problems with funding a film that would be nakedly partisan.

Around the same time, the commission’s former chief executive, Annabelle Sheehan, received a draft script of They Are Us. Producer Tim White told her: “The script is strong.”

The script is vomitous.
