The documentary feature Ms. Information is running an all-or-nothing fundraising campaign on Boosted right now. Director Gwen Isaac and producing team Phillida Perry and Alex Reed would love your help to get this nearly finished film, Ms. Information, out into the world.
In March 2020 Gwen found herself in the house of non-conforming microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles. Seeing a pandemic about to hit her adopted country, Siouxsie stepped into the public eye and spoke out to keep New Zealanders science-informed.
Ms. Information is the resulting documentary feature! The team followed Siouxsie's story over two unrelenting years of public service. The film reveals a small nation under pressure, confronted by a new type of leadership that excites, incites and polarises.
Ms. Information traverses motherhood, misogyny, misinformation and identity through the lens of a pink-haired microbiologist who "just wants to give people information".
The film is nearly finished - the producers are crowd-funding to complete the most expensive part, post-production. The team hopes you will choose to support Ms. Information – an important film about all of us in turbulent times.
The campaign finishes at midday on 8 November, 2022.
