Two EXTRA late confirmation screenings have now been scheduled into the Wairoa Maori Film Festival. Tickets to these two screenings will be available exclusively from the Festival Office, and via Door Sales at Takitimu Marae:

ANS WESTRA: PRIVATE JOURNEYS/PUBLIC SIGNPOSTS Ans Westra, whose photographs of New Zealanders constitute a uniquely expressive record of who we are and have been, now sits for the camera herself. Contemplating her career with amusement and gratitude, she speaks as one for whom photography is as natural and indispensable as seeing or remembering. Framed by a conversation with Hone Tuwhare, the film roundly acknowledges the progressive role her work played in 60s counterculture and in the cultural renaissance of Maori. * Screening: Ans Westra Private Journeys/ Public Signposts, Takitimu Marae, 4.00 p.m. Sunday October 22nd 2006
