Sit back, put your feet up, and enjoy the fruits of others’ labours. New this week …
screeNZ got to take a look at Rene Naufahu’s The Last Saint last week, and damn fine it was. The Last Saint has a splashy Civic P for premiere on 21 August and opens on 28 August. Get along and support a hard-hitting Kiwi tale.
A second run at Waiheke gets a run out next month. After the youth focus of Orphans & Kingdoms it’s the turn of the other end of the spectrum in Bryn Evans’ Hip-Hoperation.
Now screening in Australia, Screentime’s Anzac Girls will make its way on to Prime here. Hopefully the NZ promos will acknowledge the Australian funders as generously as this one does NZ On Air.
On Saturday night Dunedin will get its first look at its very own Escalator title I Survived A Zombie Holocaust. Attending as a zombie is encouraged, and make-up artists will be on hand in the Octagon during the day to help ensure you look your worst.
Adam Harvey directed Tropfest finalist You Only Die Forever. Death continues to be a theme and he’s back with Play Dead.
Coming this week is NHNZ’s End of the Wild.
Closing out the week, here’s Matiu Sadd’s MV for Whistlejacket’s She Likes Pop Art. Thanks, NZ On Air.
