Wednesday 25.09.19 – 8:30pm: BOY | Yellow Carpet Films – Theme 3 : Ethnic Diversity
Have you ever thought about the importance of ethnic representation in film ?
Do you think the representation that we see in films impacts how people from these ethnicities are seen in society?
Do you think they are represented fairly?
Set on the east coast of New Zealand in 1984, an 11 year old, simply known as Boy (James Rolleston) lives on a farm with his gran, a goat and his little brother Rocky (who thinks he has magical powers). While their gran is away for a week, Boy and Rocky’s father, Alamein (Take Waititi), appears out of the blue. Having had imagined a heroic version of his father during his absence, Boy comes face to face with the real version.
Yellow Carpet Film Nights are a place to appreciate the wonderful art of film. Every month we will explore a different theme that shines a light on the representation of social topics such as women, queer, gender and ethnic diversity.
Our third theme is ETHNIC DIVERSITY. Over the month of September we will be screening four films that show how different ethnicities have been represented over the generations and genres of cinema.
