Breaking the Mould

Breaking the Mould

‘What makes a script a New Zealand story?’
‘How do you write about a culture that is not your own?’
‘What are the funding realties for cross-cultural stories?’

The last Writer’s Room of 2007 brings you award winning screenwriters who have faced these questions and gone on to craft innovative scripts that have achieved critical acclaim both locally and on the international stage.

Join MC, writer, opinionist, and cross-cultural cross-dresser Te Radar, for a provocative discussion with:

Shuchi Kothari (A Taste of Place, Fleeting Beauty, Clean Linen)
René Naufahu (The Market, Bloodlines, Stone Dogs)
Roseanne Liang (Henchman, Rest Stop, Banana in a Nutshell) and
Zia Mandviwalla (Eating Sausage)

Tuesday 28th November, 6pm
The Classic, 321 Queen Street, Auckland
$5 donation at the door

No bookings are required for this event. For more information contact sarah[at]script-to-screen or call 09 360 5540.
