Kahukura Newsletter June-July 2001

Dear Friends, Partners, Suppliers, Customers and Collaborators We are pleased to be able to announce that Baxter has received financial backing for further script development. This feature film tells the life story of one of New Zealand’s most well known and interesting poets, James K. Baxter. Gerd Pohlmann, who also wrote the script, will direct the film. According to producer Larry Parr the most difficult part now will be in locating an actor to play the role of the eccentric poet.

The Dish is doing well at the box office in New Zealand, currently sitting at number six after five weeks in release. Those of you who haven’t seen it yet should go along, especially if you’re old enough to remember the actual event. If you have children, this is a good movie to take them along to over the holidays. It is both entertaining and educational for those too young to remember the historic moon landing.
