Tickets Now on Sale for the Gala Premiere of Rene Naufahu’s Debut Feature ‘The Last Saint’

Gala night event at the Civic open to the general public and on sale now via Ticketmaster.

Tickets to the gala premiere of Rene Naufahu’s debut feature film ‘The Last Saint’ at Auckland’s Civic Theatre on August 21st have been made available to the general public today as the much anticipated film gears up for its nationwide cinematic release on August 28th 2014.

Already been touted as a 'Kiwi Classic', ‘The Last Saint’ follows Minka (Beulah Koale), a teenage boy living in the heart of Auckland City who is forced into a world of crime in order to raise money to survive and to save his mum. The film, written and directed by Rene Naufahu, features stand-out performances from a cast made up of a mixture of screen veterans (Colin Moy, Calvin Tuteao, Joseph Naufahu , Xavier Horan) and up and coming talent.

‘The Last Saint’ is a contemporary Kiwi urban thriller that is set to make audiences laugh out loud, before having them cower in their seats. It takes the viewer on a dramatic ride through a dark, frightening, at times highly entertaining world, not seen before in an NZ film.

Writer and Director, Rene Naufahu is thrilled that the time has come to show the great work that has gone into this mini-epic to the NZ Public.

"I'm really excited about the Gala Premiere,’ Says Rene. ‘Not just because I'm finally showing The Last Saint in the way that I dreamt on the big screen, but to be debuting in the iconic Civic theatre, home of so many cinematic memories for me growing up, in front of friends, family and loved ones just makes it extra-special.

The Last Saint features an original debut score by Kiwi hip-hop supremo P-Money with a supporting soundtrack from a who's who of the local music industry. Ticket holders will have the option to upgrade their ticket to attend the official after-party held post the films premiere at the Wintergarden. Hosted by the film's director Rene Naufahu and featuring musical performances from PMoney, Deach, Thomas Rose, Onny Kaulima, Sene Atafu plus more acts from the film this party is set to be one not to miss.

General Admission tickets are available now via Ticketmaster for $20 + Booking Fee with a combined film plus after party ticket on sale for $40 + Booking Fee. Members of the public are encouraged to get in quick, as demand is sure to be strong.
