Free screening of The heART of the Matter

Posted Monday 20 Mar 2017

For those of you who missed it when it premiered at the NZIFF last year, there's a free screening of The heART of the Matter next month. (WIFT member Jan Bieringa produced the feature.)

The HeART of the Matter looks at major changes in New Zealand teaching which began after World War ll. A group of bureaucrats and arts specialists set about introducing a "thoroughly bicultural and arts-centred education system" to schools - in contrast to the rote learning of the past. Combining interviews and archival footage, Luit and Jan Bieringa (The Man in the Hat) examine this period of radical educational reform, and ask what lessons can be applied to the present.

When: 6pm, Monday 10 April
Where: The Beehive Theatrette
