Film screening of 'Te Kooti Trail' with live music at Roxy Cinema, Mirimar

As a grand finale to Adam Art Gallery’s public programme associated with its current exhibitions, come along for this rare opportunity to view the silent film Te Kooti Trail, which is screened on 35mm film with live music.

Directed by pioneering New Zealand filmmaker Rudall Hayward, Te Kooti Trail was based on the historical account of Te Kooti Ārikirangi Te Turuki in James Cowan’s second edition of The New Zealand Wars. Filmed on location around the East Cape and produced with an entirely amateur cast recruited locally according to their physical likeness to the historical figures the film depicts, this special screening will be accompanied by live music organised by composer Elliot Vaughan.

Ticket and booking details to be announced soon on Adam Art Gallery’s website.
