Adelaide Film Festival

Adelaide Film Festival

My Year With Helen is selected for Competition at Adelaide Film Festival

Inside the corridors of global power.

Will the United Nations ever wake up and appoint a female Secretary-General? That’s the question viewers will ask after watching this documentary about the highly impressive, but ultimately unsuccessful, 2016 bid by former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark to land the U.N.’s top job. Ace Kiwi filmmaker Gaylene Preston (Home by Christmas) follows the eminently qualified (and wonderfully candid) Clark through the male-dominated inner workings of the U.N. and emerges with an inspiring portrait of a dedicated, no-nonsense woman who won everything except the vote.

Screenings:

Sat Oct 7 6pm GU Film House

Sun Oct 15 4pm Palace Nova
