Filmmaker Taika Waititi grew up in a rural Maori community of New Zealand in the 80s.
He decided to go back to his hometown of Waihau Bay to film a story he wrote.
His film "Boy" is about the relationship of an 11-year-old boy and his estranged father, who returns home after spending years in prison.
Anchor Marco Werman talks to Waititi about his hometown and hiring local people as actors and extras for the film.
