dc.description.abstractThe film Theo is my filmic exploration of one unique facet of New Zealand society – the lives of Chinese immigrants overseas. Motivated by the question: ‘Are you happy in New Zealand?’ the experiences of a young Chinese man (my flatmate Theo) in Auckland are closely portrayed in an eight minute long microfilm which is an emerging film form originating from Chinese Internet users. The genre of docudrama is employed to condense three years’ experiences into the eight minute long plot. Various documentary and dramatic techniques are employed to create an aesthetic of reality in Theo. The thesis also explores strategies for promoting the film to its target audiences in China.en_NZ
