In the race for existence, striking teenagers discover that activism, authority and awareness make for a steep learning curve.
“I think it’s such a beautiful reflection of what this country has come to in terms of activism. When you think of things like Bastion Point and the Dawn Raids, and you think to now and our people are leading on the front lines of these movements.” – Mariner Fagaiava-Muller, RNZ
The Doc Edge Festival continues at the home of Māori and Pasifika visual and performing arts with a special screening of the award-winning NZ feature film High Tide Don’t Hide.
The film weaves the stories of our Rangatahi inspired by Greta Thunberg as they rally against anxiety, climate denial, and white privilege to pull together a record-setting strike in Aotearoa.
One of the central figures in the movement is South Auckland resident, advocate and poet Aigagalefili Fepulea’i-Tapua’I, known to her friends as Fili. She’s the founder of Pasifika advocacy group 4 Tha Kulture, a collective fighting for the environment and indigenous rights who actively bring the south Auckland youth voice to the big screen. Join for the screening and show your support.
After the screening, audiences can stay and discuss the film and environmentalism with both the filmmakers and activists in a live Q&A.
The screening is offered at a special price of ONLY $5 per ticket with limited capacity. We highly recommend booking early to save your spot.
