Jonothan Cullinane

Jonothan Cullinane was born in Palmerston North in 1951. Having established his proletarian bona fides as a roughneck on oil rigs in Canada and the North Sea and as a proofreader and bartender in New York City during the 1970s, he began working in the New Zealand film industry in 1981. In 2007 he wrote and directed We're Here to Help, about the Christchurch businessman Dave Henderson's titanic run-in with the IRD. The unprecedented success of that film led to a job as a postie in Mt Roskill, Auckland, a position he still holds.
