Milk and Water Film Screening, Directed by Ian Spilman

28/02/2019 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join me for drinks and the premiere screening of my master’s thesis project film “Milk and Water” on Thursday, 28th February, at Space Academy in the CBD! Space Academy bar will be serving drinks all afternoon and you are welcome to come anytime, but it will be fine to arrive at 7:30pm for the screening at 8pm. The screening is free and all are welcome! Below is a description of the film:

Milk and Water

Simultaneously striving for and reflecting on the elusive nature of objectivity in documentary filmmaking, Milk and Water explores the contentious issue of waterway contamination in New Zealand from the outside American perspective of director Ian Spilman. Throughout the film, we hear from those on opposing sides of the rural/urban divide on this topic, providing a space for the contemplation of conflicting ideas, and seeking common ground. This film explores innovative farming technologies, the growing divide between urban and rural communities, the detrimental and positive effects of agricultural irrigation, how regulation plays a massively influential role on river health, and reveals the personal stories of the individuals closely involved. (apprx. 40 mins)

Hope you can join me to help celebrate the end of a year of hard work on this film, and so that I can say thank you to all who have been so kind in helping me with this project!
