Celebrate International Women's Day and join us watch critically acclaimed film, Vai

This year we will celebrate International Women’s Day on Friday 6th March by watching the acclaimed film Vai, and soak up the beautiful diversity of the Pacific.

Vai is a portmanteau feature film created by nine female Pacific filmmakers and filmed across seven Pacific countries including Fiji, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Kuki Airani (Cook Islands), Samoa, Niue, and Aotearoa (New Zealand).

Each o the eight vignettes explores the journey of Vai from a seven year old girl to the grand matriarch of her family.  In each of these Pacific nations ‘vai’ means water.  Beautifully shot, Vai brings together Indigenous cultural and storytelling traditions, all told uniquely from a woman’s perspective.

We will start the evening with shared supper, so please bring a small share plate so we can celebrate all of the many different food traditions and cultures that we have.  Additional food and drinks will be provided by Desert Blue Connect.
Everyone is welcome to join us!

Tickets are available on Eventbrite, $15 each or $10 if you hold a health care card.

Supper at 6pm, film starts 630pm sharp.
