About the film:
The multi-faceted Paitangi Ostick: Tā Moko artist, painter, and carver along with Katz Maihi, travels to Palestine to observe, compare and collaborate with Palestinian artists and to follow a long held dream of meeting with the Bedouin Community to interact with their Kuia who are among the last remaining carriers of their tradition of facial moko.
Carver, Ta Moko artist and musician, Katz Maihi had this to say: "Despite any language challenges, we will be producing fine art and fine art is its own language. We will be creating a form of communication about our struggles, our strengths, our identity, differences, similarities and life.
Any time we get to take our culture and history around the world we must do that. This opportunity will allow us into the homes of people from some of the oldest nations on earth."
*Online sales close 8 pm 18th November. Limited Door Tickets (no guarantees & bring cash).
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Not formally but be advised that this film discusses some violent themes.
Where will the profits be going?
We are a volunteer organisation. All overheads will be accounted for (venue hire etc) but any net profit will be going back into the One World - He Ao Kotahi team so they can continue their stellar work:
He Ao Kotahi sends prominent Māori artists thousands of miles from home to draw on and highlight the similarities between Maori and other indigenous cultures. Through their eyes and ears we will see how the art and culture of our indigenous cousins worldwide has evolved, and the measures taken to ensure their precious art forms survive into the 21st century.
Will there be food available at the venue?
Food will be available to purchase at the Lido as per a usual screening.
