INVITATION TO AN EVENING AT MATAKANA CINEMAS (21 MARCH)
FIGHT FOR THE WILD EPISODES 3 & 4
The Forest Bridge Trust is hosting a night at Matakana Cinemas next Tuesday 21 March and we’d love to invite you and your members along.
Last year we were able to host episodes 1 & 2 of Peter Young’s acclaimed documentary Fight For The Wild on the big screen at Matakana Cinemas. Next Tuesday we are delighted to continue the journey and bring you the final two episodes in the series: Battle and Hope.
Episode 3 Battle – ‘Predator Free 2050 and Māori’ looks at the vital contribution of Māori towards achieving Predator Free. It begins by exploring the deep relationship between Māori and the natural world, and the ways in which the loss of biodiversity impact on the identity and well-being of Māori, and on the very culture itself. Commentators set out their expectations around Predator Free, and we explore the chance it offers for tino rangatiratanga, and a genuine bicultural partnership. They talk too about how, by healing Nature, people can themselves be healed.
Episode 4 Hope – The final in the series, ‘What’s in it for Us?’, counts both the costs and benefits of Predator Free. It explores the costs of not doing it, before setting out a range of possible, positive outcomes for the economy, our exports, for Aotearoa’s standing on the world stage – and most importantly, for ourselves and those who will follow. In one of the last interviews Sir Rob Fenwick gave before his death in March 2020, he talks about what Predator Free meant to him and estimates our chances of success.
