If you've got the blues then catch Marshall's Dealin with the Devil at Doc Edge

Posted Thursday 12 Apr 2018


We're celebrating with Sue Marshall, whose documentary, Dealin' with the Devil, will screen at this year's Doc Edge International Film Festival in Auckland and Wellington. Sue is looking for some distribution advice, so if you can help, please contact office@wift.org.nz

More than half the Doc Edge feature films are directed or co-directed by women - a reflection of the outstanding female filmmakers working in the documentary form, and completely unrepresentative of wider trends in film! DWTD, which Marshall co-directed with film editing lecturer Phil Davison, is described as "a journey from the roots of American blues in the Mississippi Delta to a blues epiphany in New Zealand".

Doc Edge Festival Dates:

Wellington: Roxy Cinema 9-20 May

Auckland: Q Theatre 23 May - 4 June
