We hosted a Q&A evening with director/editor Alastair Riddell, writer/producer Vanessa Riddell, and the cast of independent drama West of Eden.
Set in rural New Zealand during the 1960s, West of Eden tells the story of two men in love, at odds with the inherent conservatism of their surroundings. It was a great evening with plenty of questions for the cast and crew to consider surrounding themes, funding, and distribution. But what the creators of the film always returned to was that West of Eden is a love story.
This event was part of the Film Talk Series, presented by DEGNZ and Rialto Cinemas in Auckland.
