Welling­ton: The su­per­nat­u­ral drama

One Thou­sand Ropes has a chance to take home an Os­car.

New Zealand has se­lected the film as its con­tender for the for­eign­lan­guage sec­tion of the Academy Awards, Reuters re­ported.

The Samoan and English lan­guage film was writ­ten and di­rected by Tusi Tam­sese, whose film The Ora­tor was the New Zealand choice back in 2011.

The film was se­lected by a com­mit­tee within the New Zealand Film Com­mis­sion.
