Pecking Order (PG)

Join members of the 148-year-old Christchurch Poultry, Bantam and Pigeon Club in the lead up to the NZ National Show, as they battle history (and each other) in their quest for glory. Audiences will be introduced to an endearing and eclectic group of ‘chick fanciers’, each hoping to take away the top prize, including Doug the determined Club President, Rhys the young upstart, Sarah the chicken whisperer, Ian the exacting judge, Mark the voice of reason and Brian the lovable champion. ‘Pecking Order’ is a hilarious, unique, and heart-warming slice of Kiwiana which is sure to delight and surprise audiences of all ages

“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)
