NZIFF TALKS 2017: Gaylene Preston on MY YEAR WITH HELEN
This session is moderated by Helene Wong.
Fresh from the World Premiere in Sydney, legendary filmmaker Gaylene Preston reveals what she discovered about Helen Clark, and the challenges she faced when making a documentary across multiple continents with a high profile subject.
“Preston’s cameras explore the cracks between the diplomats, the embedded press and feminist activists as they push for change, (at the U.N.), while caught up in a power process as secretive and patriarchal as the selection of the Pope.” Kip Brook (makelemonade.nz)
This discussion took place on 25 July, 2017 after an 11:00am screening at Wintergarden at the Civic Theatre in Auckland.
