THE CASULA Powerhouse will serve up some of the world’s most vibrant cultures – as well as their traditional foods – this weekend as part of the Sydney Travelling Film Festival.
Saturday 9 March: The New Zealand documentary Maori Boy Genius follows the life of six-foot-five, 16 year old Ngaa Rauuira Pumanawawhiti, an inspirational and incredible teenager who was pegged to be a leader since birth – and perhaps even a future New Zealand prime minister.
Maori Boy Genius screens with short film Snow in Paradise. A full traditional Hangi feast will be served as part of the Food & Wine/Drink Meal Deal at 6pm before the films begin at 7pm.
Sunday 10 March: Valley of Saints was the winner of the Audience Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The film is set on the picturesque Dal Lake in India’s strife-torn Kashmir province and tells an unlikely story of love between a working-class boatman and a beautiful scientist, while also raising important environmental issues.
Valley of Saints screens with short film Snow in Paradise and will also offer a traditional feast as part of the Food & Wine/Drink Meal Deal from 6pm.
