WARU with Glasgow Feminist Arts Festival

November 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Waru film

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.

Free but ticketed – get tickets here.

Venue access information can be found here. A hearing loop is available.

The film relies to some extent on visual material to convey ideas but contains a lot of explanatory dialogue.

The film contains scenes or themes of child abuse, the death of a young child, and grief.
