Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION/NEWS -

The New Zealand In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val is back with bigscreen doc­u­men­tary pre­miere screen­ings at the Para­mount and the Em­bassy the­atres in April.

The Ground We Won is a funny, un­sen­ti­men­tal ac­count of a sea­son in the lives of play­ers in a New Zealand pro­vin­cial rugby team.

It’s the new film from Auck­land hus­band- and- wife team Chris Pryor and Miriam Smith. They spent a year in Reperoa re­search­ing the movie.

That Sugar Film in­ves­ti­gates the im­pact of sugar on our health. Ac­tor/ direc­tor Da­mon Gameau turned the cam­era on him­self to ex­plore the im­pact of a 40-tea­spoon a day diet, which he racked up eat­ing only food pre­sented as healthy.

The movies will screen in April and May. Tick­ets from the venue. Info at nz­iff.co.nz.
