Today we launch Loading Docs: Power, our 2019 collection.
Unified by the theme of power are stories that will have audiences questioning their own interpretation of power and revealing how unlikely characters can become the heroes of the story. Celebrating New Zealand perspectives on world issues, subjects include Kiwi icons William Trubridge, Pania Newton, the ‘Nek Minnit’ guy – Levi Hawken, and revered celestial navigator Sir Hector Busby.
He Hekenga Tūhura presents the extraordinary final interview with Sir Hector Busby – in te reo Māori – just weeks before his passing. Also part of the collection is My Breakup with God, about a devoted Christian who slams the door on the Church – against her parents’ hopes – and pursues a path of sexual freedom and love. Operation: RAMBU! propels audiences back to 1980s Indonesia to meet an unlikely Kiwi action hero.
