Your chance to quiz Helen Clark and Gaylene Preston

Posted Wednesday 29 Aug 2018

Opportunities like this don't come up very often, so make the most of this one! For the first time in Auckland, Helen Clark will attend a screening of renowned director Gaylene Preston's My Year With Helen for Q&A after the session. Demand.Film is presenting this one-off special event to celebrate Suffrage 125, this September's commemoration of 125 years since New Zealand women won the right to vote. The film follows Clark through her 2016 campaign for United Nations Secretary General, while also working on global development issues as Head of UNDP and staying in daily contact with her then 94-year-old father back in New Zealand. My Year With Helen is even more relevant in these times of #Timesup; it's the story of Clark's resilience in the face of entrenched sexism in one of the world's largest organisations. Go along to watch the film, and delight in the sharp wit Clark reveals in the Q&A sessions and in the behind-the-scenes revelations from Preston about her struggle to make the film.

When: 6:30 pm 6 September, 2018
Where: Hoyts Sylvia Park Cinema, Auckland
