Summer Movies al Fresco - What Really Happened: Waitangi

Saturday 6th February 2021

PG 2011 68 mins

This docudrama follows an imaginary news reporter who travels back in time to cover the days leading up to the Treaty of Waitangi’s signing on 6 February 1840.

Dropping the usual solemnity surrounding Aotearoa’s founding document, it uses humour and asides to camera to evoke some of the chaos and motives behind the treaty.

Gather a group, a picnic, perhaps put on your favourite onesie and join us from 7:30pm to play giant board games, enjoy the park and watch the region’s glorious summer sunsets. Wrap up warm and please pocket a torch to light your way home.

If raining, the screening will be moved inside to the Granary.

PLEASE pack it in, pack it out and KEEP OUR PARKS BEAUTIFUL!

Full summer movie schedule of 14 screenings across seven venues is available on the QR code in the images on this page, or here:
