Catch of the Week

New Zealand Listener - - THAT’SENTERTAINMENT -

CHEERS, PI­O­NEERS: When An­nie Gold­son and Dawn Hutches­son re­vis­ited the ground­break­ing 1976 TV se­ries Women for their 2004 film Sheilas: 28 Years On, they were ex­plor­ing their own jour­neys as much as those of the women they spoke to and, al­most an­other gen­er­a­tion on – and in time for Suf­frage 125 – their film has de­buted on NZ On Screen. The chance to hear the late Marcia Rus­sell again is worth the click in it­self: tinyurl.com/NZLsheilas. Sheilas is one of sev­eral new ad­di­tions to NZ On Screen’s ex­cel­lent Pi­o­neer­ing Women col­lec­tion. The oth­ers are 1994 centenary doco Votes for the Girls; Aileen O’Sul­li­van’s look at arts in the fam­ily, It’s in the Genes Girls; and a 1986 Sun­day spe­cial in which three male re­porters (one of whom is Lind­say Perigo) look into women in me­dia: tinyurl.com/ NZL­pi­oneers.

JOBS DONE: There’s also new work for Suf­frage 125, which tells its own story about where fem­i­nism is look­ing now. Min­i­mum is a se­ries of short on­line films made by Kath­leen Win­ter for Ra­dio New Zealand and Load­ing Docs that speak to women work­ing for the min­i­mum wage. Each com­bines real-life in­ter­views with an­i­ma­tion to talk about work that’s un­der­val­ued in more than one way: tinyurl.com/NZLmin­i­mum.
