What is the role of the critic and the value of reviews? Come along to hear it from the critic’s perspective
Peter Calder (NZ Herald), Sarah Watt (Sunday Star Times), Chris Philpott (On The Box – Stuff.co.nz) and Helene Wong (The Listener) talk to screenwriter Gavin Strawhan (This is Not My Life, Nothing Trivial) about the critic’s place in screen culture, from the part reviews play in sales to the question of whether or not they have a duty of care with local material.
Drinks 7pm, 7.30 start, Tuesday 27th March, The Classic, 321 Queen Street, Auckland, $5 koha appreciated, stay afterwards for a slice of pizza on us and a drink.
