Movie: Patu! - 4pm sharp!

Date and Time: 
Sunday, November 24, 2013 -
4:00pm to 6:00pm

PatuWe are starting at 4pm sharp, so that those who want to, can go to the rally in Blacktown afterwards. Merata Mita’s classic 1983 Patu! is an amazing and inspiring documentary film. It is a record of the mass direct action that took place in Aotearoa New Zealand in 1981, in protest against a South African rugby tour and the apartheid it represented.


Patu! captures a landmark moment in both direct action mobilisations and activist film-making. The director was refused funding and the film itself was refused screenings, but it received widespread acclaim at several international film festivals.
