Doc Edge in association with The Rebel Film Collective, are proud to present a special screening of the award-winning NZ feature
High Tide Don’t Hide
Māngere Arts Centre / Ngā Tohu o Uenuku, 7pm Thursday 12 August 2021.
Tickets are only $5.12 (includes booking fee) and on sale now at Eventfinda.
The Doc Edge Festival continues at the home of Māori and Pasifika visual and performing arts with a fully booked Schools programme, screening the four most popular films from this year’s Schools line up.
There’s also something to look forward to for any environmentally conscious Aucklanders. Doc Edge will be hosting a public screening of High Tide Don’t Hide, a NZ film about Aotearoa’s young eco-warriors on Thursday 12 August, 7pm.
After the screening, audiences can stay and discuss the film and environmentalism with both the filmmakers and activists in a live Q&A.
In the race for existence, striking teenagers discover that activism, authority and awareness make for a steep learning curve.
Determined to provoke real action, New Zealand teenagers join the global School Strike for Climate. But planning a movement and building momentum are the easy parts as they face political indifference, their own white privilege, and the ongoing struggle to be heard. Meanwhile, the tides continue to rise.
A central figure in the movement is South Auckland resident, advocate and poet Aigagalefili Fepulea’i–Tapua’i, known to her friends as Fili. She is 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.
Everyone everywhere has to see High Tide-Don’t Hide. It is the best, most important film I have seen in years, gives me hope for the future, kia kaha rangatahi mā, you can make a difference!!
