Confidence in me

August 13, 2002


Confidence in me
Mel Johnston, 2002

In July 2000, playwright Mel Johnston filmed three applicants going through the process of applying to Creative New Zealand.

Two years later, this much-anticipated documentary film hits BATS for a five-day season.

Confidence in me features playwrights Jo Randerson and Ryan McFadyen and performance-poets Moira Wairama & Tony Hopkins (with POART poetry collective) – all of whom are planning to develop or mount theatre projects.

From bureaucratic hoop-jumping to late-nite naval-gazing Confidence in me closely tracks their progress, seesawing between moments of fragility and absurdity along the way.
