NZ Made SF Feature Film Screenings

The Synopsis:
In a harsh futuristic reality, a young teenage girl sets out on an isolated journey to test if her memories and dreams can be trusted.

The Project:
Made by Julia Reynolds, the project was developed with community involvement in mind. Along the way it has utilised a number of first timers as extras. ‘Shepherd’ called on friends, family, colleagues; any and all community and industry networks that the production team could muster. Alongside the project, Julia’s doctoral thesis was based around the film, examining the relationship between a community based approach to filmmaking and industry based model.
