"LEITIS IN WAITING" is the story of Joey Mataele and the Tonga Leitis, an intrepid group of transgender women fighting a rising tide of religious fundamentalism and intolerance in the South Pacific Kingdom. They are led by LGBT rights activist Joleen Mataele, who founded the Tonga Leitis Association, which provides support and shelter to transgender women. The film centres on the Miss Galaxy Queen pageant, an annual beauty competition for Leitis, and on a national consultation on LGBT rights initiated by Mataele.
Synopsis: A third-rate porn producer’s most ambitious film yet may also be her most costly in this murderously kitschy homage to giallo, Grand Guignol and old school slasher movies. Opening with an arresting murder scene in a Parisian gay bar, and from then on rarely letting up, this beautifully skeezy ode to the pre-AIDS lifestyle is a glorious evocation of pulpy whodunits.

Get ready for fierce performers, salacious gossip, killer vocals, and ridiculous hilarity, all set in the lavish and decadently opulent world of Viscounts, Ladies In Waiting, Dukes and the campery of the royal court.
'Nouvelle' is the latest cabaret-cirque offering from The Entertainment Company, an evening of decadent delights curated by New Zealand director, Jeremy Hinman.
Hinman has created a vibrant experience that marries the glamour and sultry tones of Hollywood in the roaring 20’s, the excitement and thrill of live circus along with the hedonistic seduction of Paris’ Moulin Rouge, the birthplace of underground cabaret.
