“I’m interested in differences. And we have a tendency to put differences in categories, to put them in reassuring boxes. It really cuts you away. So when you come a littler nearer or closer to a “different” community, then you realise they’re just like you and me. They have the same worries, the same fears, and the same joys. In New Zealand, you have this language which is English and you also have another language – sign-language. And the two worlds, even though you live in the same country, the two communities never seem to meet, or very rarely.”
