Apron Strings premiered at the Auckland International Film Festival 2008.

In her first feature Samoan-born Aucklander Sima Urale (King Kapisi's sister, FYI) brings an ebullient light touch to a story which traces parallel, richly loaded domestic dramas in two families of cooks: one Sikh, the other dyed-in-the-wool Anglo. 

Lorna (Jennifer Ludlum) is the proprietor of an old-fashioned cake shop, and mother of the listless, unemployed Barry (Scott Wills) who's 35, still living at home and still complaining about her cooking.The glamorous host of an indian cooking show, Anita’s (Laila Rouass) usual poise is shaken when her son Michael (Nathan Whitaker), the apple of her eye, starts to "explore his Indian-ness" by finding a job in an Otahuhu curry-house.
Rich, humorous and filled with warmth Apron Strings is a delicate soufflé of honest domestic coming-of-age dramas that draw the line between mothering and smothering.

 

 
Two of Hong Kong’s most renowned directors Johnnie To (Election, Exiled) & Wai Ka Fai (Running on Karma) join forces to deliver a film that has been internationally hailed by critics and filmgoers alike.
 
In one of his best performances to date, Lau Ching-wan (Black Mask) plays the multi-dimensional role of Bun, an outcast detective whose psychotic personality and unorthodox investigative methods have cost him his job - even though he has always solved the cases entrusted to him. After cutting off his own ear and offering it as a gift at a party in honour of one of his superiors, Bun is forced into retirement. The only person who still believes in Bun is power-hungry inspector Ho (Andy On – New Police Story), who is determined to solve the complex case of a missing police gun. As Bun and Ho join forces their investigation quickly descends into a bizarre series of off-kilter events that eventually leads to a shocking and maddening outcome.
