Doc Edge in association with Māngere Arts Centre and The Rebel Film Collective, are proud to present a special screening of the award-winning NZ feature film

High Tide Don’t Hide

After the screening, audiences can stay and discuss the film and environmentalism with both the filmmakers and activists in a live Q&A.

Winner of the Best NZ Editing Award, High Tide Don’t Hide weaves the stories of five New Zealand teenagers inspired by Greta Thunberg as they rally against anxiety, climate denial, and white privilege to pull together a record-setting strike in Aotearoa.

In the race for existence, striking teenagers discover that activism, authority and awareness make for a steep learning curve.

Determined to provoke real action, New Zealand teenagers join the global School Strike for Climate. But planning a movement and building momentum are the easy parts as they face political indifference, their own white privilege, and the ongoing struggle to be heard. Meanwhile, the tides continue to rise.

A central figure in the movement is South Auckland resident, advocate and poet Aigagalefili Fepulea’i–Tapua’i, known to her friends as Fili. She is the founder of Pasifika advocacy group 4 Tha Kulture, a ccollective fighting for the environment and indigenous rights that actively bring the south Auckland youth voice to the big screen.

At a special price of only $5 per ticket and a capacity of 230 seats, booking early is recommended. Tickets can be purchased through Eventfinda.

Everyone, everywhere has to see High Tide-Don’t Hide. It is the best, most important film I have seen in years, gives me hope for the future, kia kaha rangatahi mā, you can make a difference! Dr. Ella Henry, AUT
