Pecking Order (TBA)

Fierce rivalries, club infighting, problematic birds and irregular judging are just some of the challenges faced by a group of zealous Kiwi chicken breeders hell bent on victory at the 2015 National Poultry Show. This feel-good, feather-ruffling flockumentary follows a group of witty and distinctive poultry obsessives trying to peak at nationals as their 148-year old club crumbles around them.

“A hilarious and heart-warming slice of Kiwiana”

“Some birds know they are a good looking chicken and turn it on for a show,”

"They are understated, classic Kiwis. The film is a vehicle for examining the human condition. There is a bit of drama too, of course, but there are tensions in any competitive environment. It all makes for an interesting film."

"Chickens are special creatures"

"Every time I eat one I think 'I am a monster', I feel bad about it, but not too bad because they taste good."

 - Slavko Martinov (director)
