Event description

Description

Independent Women is a monthly screening series bringing you underrated, overlooked, “Why haven’t I seen this?!” films directed by women.

“The film boasts a terrific newcomer in the lead role, exquisite widescreen photography and a powerful sense of place.” - Hollywood Reporter

“A film of elegant simplicity that seamlessly combines reality and mythology.” - Dallas Morning News

“Paratene and Castle-Hughes both exude an intrinsic majesty the camera adores.” - Globe and Mail

Only males are allowed to ascend to chiefdom in a Maori tribe in New Zealand. This ancient custom is upset when the child selected to be the next chief dies at birth. However his twin sister, Pai (Keisha Castle-Hughes), survives. At age 12, she enlists the help of her grandmother (Vicky Haughton) and the training of her uncle (Grant Roa) to claim her birthright. But to break with convention, she'll have to do the impossible: win over her ultra-traditional grandfather (Rawiri Paratene).

Dir. Niki Caro. 2003. 105 min.

Stick around after the film! Each ticket is redeemable for $2 off any drink at the bar.
