Chef's Table director shoots emotive campaign created by Special Group New Zealand and Finch

Zia Mandviwalla Returns to Commercials with Powerful Holden Spot 'Bella'

After several months on Netflix's Emmy-nominated series Chef's Table in London, Delhi and Los Angeles, FINCH's Zia Mandviwalla has returned home with the beautifully emotive 'Street Smart' TVC for Holden.

The NZ based Holden Street Smart initiative is all about getting young drivers ready for life on Kiwi roads, and with her special brand of character driven storytelling Mandviwalla has brought to life the true and touching story of Bella and a tragic car crash that changed her life forever.

After a successful year, which included her short film Night Shift being made a Staff Pick and subsequently winning Best Vimeo Video of the Month, and directing the Asma Kahn episode from the upcoming sixth season of Netflix's Chef's Table, Mandviwalla is available for commercials in the APAC region.
