Kia Ora from We Live in Public in Auckland

Auckland Sunset

Auckland Sunset

WE LIVE IN PUBLIC is in Auckland, NZ for our first screening with the New Zealand Film Festival.  We were lucky enough to be paired up with NZ director Pietra Brettkelly who is hosting us and squiring us around this lovely country.  She directed a great doc that went to Sundance last year called The Art Star And The Sudanese Twins.

We all went to the beach yesterday and worked off our jetlag while laughing at the handful of dogs going ballistic in the volcanic sand and gazing at the glorious sky as the sun went down.

Today it’s wine tasting on some island that’s a stone’s throw from Auckland and then… our New Zealand premiere!  If you are in the neighborhood  — 9:00 PM July 23rd at Sky City Cinemas.
