Hang out at Hawkins

25 March 2014

Hang out at Hawkins

Come join the cast of ‘The Pa Boys’ for a special Q&A session at Hawkins Theatre, Papakura.

‘The Pa Boys’ is the latest film from the producer of ‘Boy, Mina Mathieson,’ and follows Danny, Cityboy and Tau – a three-piece Wellington reggae band ‘The Pa Boys’, who set off on a tour of small town New Zealand with the aim of reaching Cape Reinga at the top of the North Island..

The story explores the strength of friendship, and the importance of whānau (family), whakapapa (genealogy), and identity.

Lead actors Francis Kora (of Kiwi band ‘Kora’) and Matariki Whatarau, along with Mina Mathieson will be available to meet after the final screening of the movie at Hawkins Theatre on 31 March.

Hawkins Theatre runs Q& A sessions where possible whenever a Kiwi film is shown. These are a great opportunity for film-goers to have a conversation with some of New Zealand’s finest up and coming actors and film-makers, and to learn behind the scenes details from critically acclaimed New Zealand films.

Monday 31 March
7.30pm
Hawkins Theatre
12 Ray Small Drive
Papakura

Tickets can be purchased:
In advance: $9 adults, $7 concession
On door: $12 adults, $10 concession

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
