WARU with Glasgow Feminist Arts Festival
November 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Presented as part of Glasgow Feminist Arts Festival and sponsored by the University of Glasgow’s School of Culture and Creative Arts ‘Inclusive/Exclusive’ series.
A powerful drama co-directed by eight Māori women directors – Briar Grace-Smith, Casey Kaa, Ainsley Gardiner, Katie Wolfe, Chelsea Cohen, Renae Maihi, Paula Jones, Awanui Simich-Pene – Waru is an exploration of abuse, shame and healing. The film comprises eight unedited sequences each offering a different woman’s perspective on the death of a young boy, Waru, who has been killed by his caregiver. Set around the tangi (a Māori funeral), it is a bold film that challenges the audience through its compelling and original storytelling.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with Lauren and Kathi from Femspectives.
