AUNTY AND THE STAR PEOPLE – (In)Visible NZ Film Festival

Aged 50, Jean Watson sold her Wellington house to buy land for a children’s home in southern India. In 2013 filmmaker Gerard Smyth spent two months in India, chronicling Watson and some of the many lives she has changed- Aunty and The Star People was born.. Smyth’s documentary also harks back to the 60s, when Watson wrote novel Stand in the Rain, and hunted crocodiles with Barry Crump. The result won solid audiences at the 2014 NZ Film Festival. The Listener gave it four stars; “Unpretentious but unashamedly enjoyable” said The Dominion Post.

Tickets $10. 7 pm screening, Q&A session to follow.
