2. Free screening of "8" - tonight (Wednesday) at 6.30pm in Engineering Lecture Theatre 1401. Here's a little bit about the film from the Stand Up NZ group who have organised the showing:
This is a great movie that we think you will enjoy. 8 directors give their impression of one millennium goal in 8 short films. Run time is approx 107min long and will start at 6.30pm. If you cant come for the whole thing, thats fine, you're still welcome!The directors who have contributed include Jane Campion, who shot in Australia on the goal of ensuring environmental sustainability. While all the Millenium Development Goals are relevant to women, readers may be particularly interested in the short films on Goals 3 (promote gender equality) and 5 (improve maternal health).
