Category: Movies Movie: GARY OF THE PACIFIC


April 2, 2017

When struggling real-estate agent Gary Vasisi (Josh Thomson) is called back to his homeland in the Pacific, he’s handed a great opportunity - the chance to take his dying father’s (Dave Fane) crown and become Chief of an island that is rapidly sinking into the ocean.

With a treasury and a tropical paradise to his name, Gary hopes to give his girlfriend Chloe (Megan Stevenson) the wedding she wants, and finally attain the success he’s yearned for. Even if it is at the expense of his people.

A new Kiwi-Pacific comedy from the creators of 7 DAYS (downlowconcept), Gary of the Pacific is in cinemas from March 16.

Gary has been a labour of love for the Downlow Concept's trio of Jarrod Holt, Ryan Hutchings and Nigel McCulloch, who started work on their first movie script after the success of their short film Brown Peril, which also starred Thomson and won the 48 Hour Film Festival competition in 2006.
