New WIFT member Rose Archer is proud to share two documentary shorts she's worked on, which traverse the subjects of New Zealand and international politics.
Water for Gold
Water for Gold tells the alarming story of how international trade law is leading us to trade our most basic rights to clean, safe water for access to gold. This was made through Loading Docs, and premiered at the NZIFF. It's a sister film to Beautiful Democracy.
Beautiful Democracy is a vibrant exploration of the art and activism surrounding the Pro-Democracy movement in New Zealand. This was made entirely through crowd fundraising. It is a longer documentary short (running at 23 minutes), about New Zealanders finding a way to engage in and defend democracy in New Zealand. Since the film was crowd-fundraised, the makers have released the film online for free so that people can access, and screen, the film with minimal limitations.
