Toi Wāhine Film Screenings

I’m always interested in relationships between women. I’m always interested in how women relate to each other, whether it’s a family relationship or it’s a friend relationship. That’s such uncharted territory in cinema.

Births, Deaths & Marriages.jpg

In the depths of Upper Hutt, 1994, the Hart clan is going through a very bad-hair day. Sinead has been jilted at the altar, grandmas popped her clogs, Aunty Ngaire is having an existential crisis, Katherine is about to give birth in the front room, Storm’s giving unrequested grief therapy tips, and Aidan, originally tasked with filming the wedding, is now filming the whole thing… One family. One weekend. One hell of a home video Births, Deaths & Marriages is a slice of life kiwi comedy about life, death and everything in between!
