‘Whare Tapa Wha’ – A presentation by Briar March

September 25, 2013

Synopsis: Seen through the eyes of two Maori women who are involved in opposing housing projects, Whare Tapa Wha documents the creation of one  community and the destruction of another. Yvonne Dainty is battling to  save the state houses that are being ripped out of her neighborhood in  Glen Innes – a predominately low-income Maori and Pacific Island  suburb, while Fleur Palmer is taking these houses to build a new community for Maori families in Kaitaia; one failed utopian vision is being dismantled to start another. Structured around the natural mirroring of the two projects, Whare Tapa Wha explores how the health of a community is affected when self-determination, state control, and privatization intervene.

Synopsis: The story of an extraordinary, somewhat self-punishing, regatta exerted over 130km of the Waikato river via the first outboard motor created in the world – The British Seagull. This is a race that draws a colourful assortment of people from all corners of New Zealand and the world. All of which are willing to subject themselves to a two-day endurment that will test their patience, tempers and humour.

A Successful DOC2DOC in Wellington | November 2012

November 19, 2012

Dear DOC2DOC fans and followers.

It’s the new week following the Wellington DOC2DOC the Screen Directors Guild of NZ hosted last Thursday, and after a debrief here in the office, we’re happy to say that the night went off without a hitch and was well enjoyed by all. The event was hosted at the Fringe Bar on Wellington’s Cuba Street, a cultural centre for the city.
We had four presentations from four different documentary filmmakers:

– William Watson with War with no Guns

– Lala Rolls with Tupaia Endeavour

– Jess Feast with Gardening with Soul

– Grant Campbell with Grandma’s Unicycle.

All of these projects were great and each presenter had a set of well-considered questions. The audience was engaged and very supportive of these film projects.

We’d like to thank Costa Botes for chairing the event, and a thank you to Jez Brown for his help with the AV set-up for the event. Also a thank you to the Fringe Bar for the venue.
Here are some photos for the evening:

We’re expecting DOC2DOC to come back next year and we’ll start to plan these evenings in the new year so stay posted.
