Doc Edge and Auckland Live are presenting four exceptional new films at Auckland’s iconic venue, The Civic, for one day only.
The day includes a sneak peek of the highly anticipated new Kiwi film High Tide Don’t Hide (NZ) at 11am followed by the New Zealand premiere of The Apollo (USA) at 1pm, the world premiere of The Man On The Island (NZ) + Q&A at 3.30pm and the New Zealand premiere of The Painter and The Thief (NOR) at 6pm.
The NZ film High Tide Don’t Hide was inspired by Greta Thunberg and follows five Kiwi teenagers who rally against anxiety, climate denial and each other to pull together record-setting school strikes in Aotearoa.
The world premiere of The Man on the Island is the story of Colin – just your typical 77-year-old, artistic and erudite, self-isolating for 30 years on Rakino, a tiny island in the Hauraki Gulf. “He certainly has made a life for himself out there and got a few good stories to tell.” Neil Finn.
I have seen The Man on the Island and The Painter and the Thief and can recommend both films – so go check out the films at the Civic Theatre on Sunday 22nd November 2020.
