Doc Edge Tour 2020

Following the success of our first ever online festival and going nationwide, Doc Edge is excited to partner with The Roxy to celebrate being able to go back to the cinema and see some of the films that deserve to be seen on the big screen.

We have curated a selection of films we think you’ll love watching from the comfort of a beautiful chair at The Roxy with a vino and a friend or two.

The one everybody is talking about, #UNFIT – The Psychology of Donald Trump asks the question “Is he fit to be president?”

If you love films with ‘David versus Goliath’ themes about politics, war, corruption, whistle-blowers, scandals and investigative journalism, then you’ll love Influence (the rise and fall of the world’s most dangerous PR company), How to Steal a Country and This is Not a Movie (about one of the world’s most famous war correspondents and a light in the furore of ‘fake news’).

For lovers of biographies, arts and culture: Stevenson Lost & Found, about New Yorker magazine’s most prolific and ‘infamous’ cartoonist and made by award-winning Kiwi filmmaker, Sally Williams; Richard Leplastrier – Framing The View, whose work is revered by architects around the world. Leplastrier’s search for beauty in his career is interwoven with his own life in a bush camp on the edge of Sydney.

A perfect kiwi double-feature – two beautiful films and our Academy-Award qualifiers for next year’s Oscars; Pluck is 2020’s Best New Zealand Short. Jean Neshausen has learned to weave korowai out of unravelled feather dusters and roadkill. She’s made 15 cloaks for her community so far, but not yet for her daughter, and life has dealt her an unfair deadline. Elementa - this year’s Best New Zealand Feature, is a visual feast filmed over five years on seven continents. Ice, fire, earth, air and æther collide with incredible cinematography from Earth’s most remote places including the vast wilderness of the white continent, ancient rainforests, oceans and erupting volcanoes.

Food and Sustainability from one extreme to the other with A Chef’s Journey, about David Kinch and his team’s adventure from their 3 Star Michelin restaurant in California to a one of a kind “four hands” collaboration with three legendary chefs in France. First We Eat follows a family of five for a year living only on food that can be hunted, gathered, fished, grown or raised in a desolate Yukon community where the Arctic Circle is closer than any major city. Add three skeptical teens, one reluctant husband, no salt, caffeine, sugar and minimal grains and you have a phenomenal look at learning to live off the land.

Doc Edge Originals are three exciting new stories from Kiwi filmmakers covering contemporary issues and made especially for young adults: A Broken Earth follows two environmental award-winning farmers who are forced to deal with the effects of fracking and oil drilling right next to their home. Rise goes behind the scenes to track the teenagers responsible for organising and rallying as many people as possible for the largest climate protest in the world. We Rock! Is a celebratory and empowering look at young Kiwi musicians banding together as they attend Girls Rock Camp Aotearoa.
