Acclaimed interactive web doco Conversations With Teenage Mums now online

Posted Tuesday 05 Sep 2017

A big shoutout to WIFT member Vicky Pope whose web-based documentary Conversations with Teen Mums is now live. Made in Auckland over four years by director Juliette Veber and produced by Vicky, the interactive documentary features photographic portraits, quotes, films and written interviews, and provides an intimate window to the minds of young mums who are coming of age as their children grow. Providing a voice for a group of women who are rarely given a voice, Conversations also explores wider issues such as poverty, access to education, inequality, domestic violence and the Auckland housing crisis.

Ever wonder how a violin is made? Come and watch WIFT-er Kath Thomas's documentary Notes in the Wood, which follows the late Stan Monk, a maverick in the world of traditional violin making. Stan worked on his craft in a garden shed at Auckland's Muriwai Beach. An artisan and a number 8 wire-kind of guy, Stan blended art, science and passion with his philosophies on life and music as he pursues his quest to make the sweetest sounding violin. The $15 ticket price includes wine & music.
