FilmSoc w/ NZSS Week 3: Whale Rider - Free Pizza!
12 August, 2016
Electrical Engineering Building (Brown Theater)
This week we are honouring the tradition of collaborating with the auspicious New Zealand Student Society (NZSS), to bring you:
Whale Rider (Caro, 2002)
The critically-acclaimed New Zealand film follows the plight of a young Maori girl, Kahu Paikea Apirana, as she fights to become the chief of the tribe. Hers by birth right, she needs to break the time-honoured male-only tradition and, most of all, convince her grandfather.
Whale Rider did very well at the Toronto International Film Festival upon release and Keisha Castle-Hughes (Kahu) even went on to get nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress.
So come along and bring your friends, as always FREE pizza and drinks!
