Michael King: A Moment in Time

I interviewed Michael King with Vanya Shaw in 1991 at the Writers Week in Dunedin. The interview was part of a series of interviews and documentation of this writers festival in Dunedin. It was shot by cameraman Rewa Harre and produced by Ana Foreman and Clare O'Leary. The film has been through a number of funding applications over the years and finally in 2007 sees the light of day through support from the International Film Festival and the NZ Film Commission with support from Executive Producer Glenis Giles. The film will be screened at the Mediaplex in Wellington on 26 July at 12.15 and 1.30. The film was edited by Simon Reece, The Dub Shop and a soundscape designed by Michelle Scullion with additional music by Michael O'Leary & Patsy Ryan and Blackthorn, Dunedin.
Other writers interviewed at the time include Hone Tuwhare, Elsie Locke, Gaylene Gordon, Patricia Grace, Bub Bridger, David Eggleton, Sandra Bell, Bronwen Bannister, Michael O'Leary and many others....this is part of an ongoing collection of NZ writers and artists...
