A Gender Agenda presents a special screening of Rūrangi for Transgender Day of Visibility.

Caz (Elz Carrad) returns for the first time since he transitioned to the home he fled a decade earlier, the remote Kiwi town of Rūrangi.

Despite the profound changes of the intervening years, Caz attempts to reconnect with family and friends, including his ex-boyfriend Jem (Arlo Green), who is still wounded by Caz’s sudden disappearance.  

Max Currie’s powerful film is an authentic and emotional tale of gender, racial and sexual identity in modern New Zealand. 

'An understated but nevertheless monumentally moving drama' – The Upcoming

'Simply outstanding' – MovieMarker

'Each performance is incisive and grounded, adding sharply important angles to the story. Max Currie recounts the story with a remarkable openness' – Shadows On the Wall

'Takes a nuke to cliched cis-splained queer stories' – Liam Maguren

All donations from this event will be going to Encampment – a 2-day overnight camp for LGBTIQ+ young people facilitated by mentors aged 18–25 who are trained and supported by AGA and Meridian.

The aim of Encampment is to bring local LGBTIQ+ young people together, to support participants to navigate their gender identities and sexualities, and strengthen their connection to the community. 

The NFSA is a venue partner for this event.
