Celia - Advance Screening including Q&A with Director / Producer Amanda Millar

Saturday 16th February 2019

In a better world than this, Celia the film would not yet exist.
Celia Lashlie should still be doing her ground-breaking, revolutionary, compassionate and globally significant work, and she would never have found the time to sit for three days while journalist and film-maker Amanda Millar prompted her to reflect on and unpick some of her many, many accomplishments.

Lashlie was the prison guard who became an educator, who became an advocate and a best-selling and hugely admired author. She founded her life on speaking truth to power, often in some of the saltiest language prime-time and public radio had ever heard.

Lashlie's books, especially He'll Be OK: Growing Gorgeous Boys into Good Men and Journey to Prison: Who Goes and Why have been influential in challenging and evolving New Zealander's attitudes to upbringing and education all the way from Parliament to the house next door.
