The Pantograph Punch x NZIFF presents: HARD TRUTHS

We're partnering with the New Zealand International Film Festival this year to bring you a special opening-weekend conversation about truth, lies, and documentaries.

In the era of post-truth editorialising and 'alternative facts', it's easier than ever to distort reality to further an agenda. But where does this leave documentaries? What are our expectations when it comes to seeing the truth on screen, and can we ever justify a lie in service of something bigger?

For one afternoon only, we're bringing together documentary-makers Gaylene Preston (My Year With Helen), Annie Goldson (Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web), Tearepa Kahi (Poi E) and Paul Oremland (100 Men) for a candid conversation about their relationships and responsibilities to the truth, and the uncharted waters they've navigated in their work. Chaired by Julie Hill.

Update: Listen to the discussion here:
