Community Media Trust, 1 July 2014: Tickets go on sale at the 2014 New Zealand International Film Festival for the world premiere of Alister Barry and Abi King-Jones’ hotly-anticipated documentary, Hot Air. The film tracks the politics of climate change in New Zealand.
Despite many attempts to minimise New Zealand greenhouse activity in 20 years, emissions have actually increased by 25%. So what went wrong? Barry and King-Jones speak with all the major players from the period, and present a wealth of compelling footage from the archives. As New Zealand prepares for a general election, and the world anticipates next year’s climate conference in Paris, no time is more crucial for this story to be told. Can we expect real change, or just more hot air?
The screening times scheduled so far are:
Thursday 31 July 6:15pm Paramount Cinema (World Premiere)
Wednesday 6th August 11:00 am Paramount Cinema
Friday 1 August 1:00 pm Sky City Cinema
Saturday 2nd August 3.30 pm Sky City Cinema
Bookings can be made on line or by getting hold of a programme or by phone.
