City Voice Media Ltd. ceases publishing City Voice

City Voice Media Ltd. announced today that last week’s City Voice (5 July, 2001) was the last one to be published by the company and no plans are being made to re-initiate publication.

“We had a great team, incredible support from investors and readers and a very unique newspaper, unfortunately the Wellington advertising market wasn’t reacting as we had expected it” said Federico Monsalve director of City Voice Media Ltd. and publisher of the newspaper.

“City Voice was unique in the country for its independence and points of view. From the reactions I’ve had over the last few days, I can tell it will be widely missed,” said news editor Mike Beggs.

We hope the paper, which lasted for over 8 years and was a landmark in New Zealand journalism, serves as proof that there is a hunger in Aotearoa for independent media, and as encouragement to anyone else wishing to begin a similar publication.

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
