Christchurch Pride Special Screening: RŪRANGI

Sunday, 7 March from 6:15 pm-8:00 pm

$12 – $17

Alice is proud to support CHRISTCHURCH PRIDE WEEK with a special screening of the groundbreaking new transgender feature film from New Zealand, RŪRANGI. A‌ ‌young‌ ‌trans‌ ‌activist, ‌‌Caz‌ ‌(Elz‌ ‌Carrad),‌ ‌breaks‌ ‌down‌ ‌in‌ ‌tears‌ ‌in‌ ‌front‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌support‌ ‌group‌ ‌towards‌ ‌the‌ ‌start‌ ‌of‌ ‌‌Rūrangi‌.‌ ‌He‌ ‌doesn’t‌ ‌know‌ ‌how‌ ‌he‌ ‌can‌ ‌help‌ ‌the‌ ‌queer‌ ‌people‌ ‌in‌ ‌front‌ ‌of‌ ‌him,‌ ‌and‌ ‌feels‌ ‌entirely‌ ‌guilty,‌ ‌even‌ ‌shameful‌ ‌about‌ ‌that‌ ‌fact.‌ ‌Like‌ ‌many‌ ‌of‌ ‌our‌ ‌young‌ ‌queer‌ ‌people,‌ ‌he’s‌ ‌burned‌ ‌out‌ ‌not‌ ‌by‌ ‌his‌ ‌struggle,‌ ‌but‌ ‌by‌ ‌the‌ ‌struggle‌ ‌of‌ ‌those‌ ‌around‌ ‌him.‌ ‌Having fled his hometown of Rūrangi‌ to find himself, Caz returns ‌hoping‌ ‌to‌ ‌connect‌ ‌not‌‌ ‌just with‌ ‌his‌ ‌father‌ ‌(Kirk‌ ‌Torrance),‌ ‌who‌ ‌he‌ ‌left‌ ‌ten‌ ‌years‌ ‌ago,‌ ‌pre-transition,‌ but‌ ‌the‌ ‌small‌ ‌community‌ whose ‌residents are ‌having‌ ‌struggles of their own‌ ‌now‌ ‌as‌ ‌well.
