Left-wing Film Initiative screening this Monday

Left-wing Film Initiative

The Left Film Initiative will be showing 'Coffee, Tea or Me', & 'Even Dogs are Given Bones', at the People's Centre, next Monday at 7:30.

”Coffee, Tea or Me?”
Director: Brita McVeigh
"What I had now was quite simply a story that traced the changing status of women. It finally made sense to me, as the recipient, a woman of the next generation. I had been trying to grasp the anomalies of the 50s, 60s and 70s working environment for a New Zealand air hostess and now I could see a way to tell the stories of these women." - Brita McVeigh

”Even Dogs are Given Bones”
The story of the sit-in strike of women workers at the Rixen factory in Levin.

7:30 p.m. Monday, 9th December Wellington People's Centre, Lukes Lane (opp. Te Aro Park)
Admission by Koha

Guest Speaker: Brita McVeigh


Left-wing Film Initiative is supported by the Wellington People's Centre, The Alliance Party, The Green Party, Vanguard Films, and Unite. If there are other groups who would like to join, contact the promoter, John Anderson.
