A love story unlike any you've heard before.
New Zealand musical romance inspired by a true story and adapted from a stage play, featuring classic Kiwi songs from the likes of Crowded House and Bic Runga. From the award-winning director of Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses.
Leaving her dying father’s bedside, singer Maisie rushes to perform at an indie music gig in town. But as she sings the opening song, it’s hard for her to ignore the heartfelt story she’s just been told – the story of how her dad met and fell in love with her mother, and how it all devastatingly fell apart. As the night goes on, we see the love story of Eric and Rose through Maisie's eyes. From the time they meet in Hamilton in 1966 to their separation in the 1980s, we follow the bittersweet nuances of a couple’s life, expressed with contemporary re-imaginings of the iconic New Zealand hit songs of artists such as Crowded House, Bic Runga and Dave Dobbyn.
A love story unlike any you've heard before.

In this emotionally-charged, lovingly-made documentary, social advocate Celia Lashlie talks openly about her life, her work and her dreams of a better New Zealand.
After receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis in late 2014, Lashlie asked her friend, award-winning journalist Amanda Millar, to film the final year of her life. But in February 2015, Millar was summoned to bring a camera to Lashlie’s home for what turned out to be the only interview for this film. Lashlie died on February 16, 2015, just two days after that interview.
Lashlie recognised that this film would be her last chance to share her vital messages about how to change the lives of those involved in New Zealand’s appalling violence, prison and suicide statistics.
Celia presents the transformational effect of this one charismatic woman in the lives of some of the most damaged people in the country. It is an intimate portrait in which family, close friends, people she worked with and those she helped provide fond recollections while archival footage adds context.

As she is interrogated, Joan relives the dramatic events that shaped her life and beliefs: her student days at Cambridge, where she excelled at physics while challenging deep-seated sexism; her tumultuous love affair with a dashing political radical (Tom Hughes); and the devastation of World War II, which inspired her to risk everything in pursuit of peace. Based on a sensational true story, Red Joan vividly brings to life the conflicts etween patriotism and idealism, love and duty, courage and betrayal of a woman who spent a lifetime being underestimated while quietly changing the course of history. Sophie Cookson costars.
