Peter H's March Around the World 2021

Thanks to Lise for hosting another year of this incredible challenge!!

My list is subject to change, depending on availability of movies. Streaming services seem to be especially fickle with obscure foreign films. The first film is my pick for this year's featured country (New Zealand!), and then films are arranged alphabetically by the country they're from.

Check out the notes for info on how I'm accessing each film. I also comment if the film has a female director (I'm trying to emphasize female-directed films for myself) and if it is my first time watching a film from that country.
