SCI COMM STUDENT FILM PREMIERE
10 July 2021
From kiwis to climate change, farmland to Fiordland, July 10th is a red-carpet evening at the Regent!
Join us at 7:30 pm for six sensational films, produced by current and former Master’s students of University of Otago’s Centre for Science Communication, home of the world’s leading postgraduate programme for Science and Natural History Filmmaking.
Growing Up Kiwi by Madeleine Brennan follows the story of “Almer,” a feisty little Haast Tokoeka kiwi through his first year of life.
A Forest’s Dream by Upamanyu Das tells a beautifully cinematic tale of Fiordland from the perspective of its residents – a wise old tree, the bedrock that forms its foundation, and the water that shapes it.
The hilarious mockumentary, Kiwis Against Birds by Peter Naik delivers a laugh-out-loud, yet potent message of conservation.
Imy Mahon’s Protecting the Pomahaka introduces viewers to this iconic river and those on a mission to protect it.
Winds of Change by Janic Gorman is an inspiring cross-cultural adventure with future leaders of climate-action.
And Tegan Good’s award-winning Nest 38 tells the story of a pair of banded dotterels attempting to defy the odds to raise their chicks on a surprisingly hostile New Zealand beach.
It’s a night not to be missed!
