Hélène: living the dream in Morocco

DOS OJOS

COLLECTIVE Representing the group of cinephiles who have created and curated In the Shade – an Auckland film festival that promises an oasis of cool cinema for summer... Q : You're waking up in the brand-new year that is 2022 – what is your very first thought? A : Wow, that was one hell of a nightmare. Q : What is one thing you couldn’t do in 2021 that is first on your to-do list in 2022? A : Watch all the films we missed during the 100+ days of no cinemas being open in Auckland. You’ll find us hanging out at the In The Shade garden bar, before slipping inside to watch the next Oscar-winning film. Q : If you could travel anywhere, near or far, in 2022 where would that be? A : We’d be hitting up the international film festivals

from which our lineup is sourced. We’d be starting with Sundance where Flee won World Cinema Grand Jury Prize: Documentary, before booting to Berlin where Censor made waves last year. We’d go to Cannes and spend some time where A Hero , Annette , Memoria , Nitram and Drive My Car all won major prizes; before heading along to Toronto where Jessica Chastain was presented with the Tribute Actor Award, while her film The Eyes of Tammy Faye showed there. Q : Your dream event to watch or attend in 2022? A : #intheshadenz Q : Is there anything that you started doing in 2021 that you intend to keep up in 2022? A : Launch a film festival! The seeds of In The Shade started when we were all stuck in lockdown and

wishing there was a way for everyone to see the films we missed in late 2021, but also get a first look at films like Nightmare Alley , C’mon C’mon and Licorice Pizza that are getting all the awards buzz. Can’t wait to have people come chill with us! Q : Your biggest hope for 2022? A : That Kiwis get to enjoy what they love together, safely – whether that’s going to a concert, hanging out at the beach, having a picnic in the park, playing sport or yes, watching films. Community building is more important than ever after the year we have all had; bring on 2022.
