PECKING ORDER

Dir: Slavko Martinov

For a historic club in Christchurch, competitive poultry pageantry is not only a hobby – it’s an obsession. Watch the feathers fly in the lead up to the NZ National Show, as they battle tradition, and each other, in their quest for glory.

CHAVELA, Oct 3rd 2017

Dir: Catherine Gund & Daresha Kyi

Chavela Vargas revolutionised music in Mexico with her hypnotic raspy voice singing music traditionally reserved for men. This film tells the epic story of her fearless life, emotive music and passionate love affairs.

THE LURE

Dir: Tomas Leach

With the astonishing New Mexican Rocky Mountains as backdrop, we meet Forrest Fenn - an eccentric Air Force veteran and art dealer who decided to hide a treasure worth $3 million - and a series of fanatic treasure hunters lured in to the American West with the goal of decoding Fenn’s cryptic instructions. 

On the Line: THE IRON MINISTRY

Dir: J. P. Sniadecki

Filmed over three years on China’s railways, The Iron Ministry traces the vast interiors of a country on the move: flesh and metal, clangs and squeals, light and dark, language and gesture. Scores of rail journeys come together into one, capturing the thrills and anxieties of social and technological transformation.
