'The House of Cards of the UN': Helen Clark film reveals a shadowy world
A documentary playing in Australia this month provides a happy and timely reminder that before there was Jacinda Ardern, there was Helen Clark.
The extraordinary post-parliamentary career of the former New Zealand prime minister is the subject of My Year With Helen. In it, filmmaker Gaylene Preston tells a story of leadership, patriarchy, women and power as she follows Clark into one of world’s most secretive – and significant – power processes, the one to be elected secretary general of the UN.
Sydneysiders can take part in a live Q&A with Helen Clark as well as watch her documentary, My Year with Helen, on 22 March at Event Cinemas George St Sydney. Pre-purchase tickets essential: demand.film
