‘E Blacks’ on the Big Screen

E Blacks, directed by Ashley Pitman (DEGANZ) and produced by fellow members Rajneel Singh and Annamarie Connors (aka The Unkindness), is screening in the 2024 Auckland Independent Film Showcase.

The 17-minute documentary dives into the world of competitive gaming through the perspective of Sam ‘Fury’ Johnson. Sam regrets wasting time in university when he could have been focusing on his real passion: gaming. Now, he has an opportunity to redeem himself in the gaming world at the national championship. If he and his team win, they will have their shot to represent New Zealand at the Commonwealth Esports Championships.

E Blacks was funded and created through Loading Docs in 2022 and has since been available to watch on RNZ. It will also screen at the Bridgeway Cinema in Auckland along with four other short films and one feature in the showcase.
