Otago Polytechnic

We are pleased to invite staff and students to an exclusive screening of Dunedin’s newest short film, Milk.

Milk is set in 1945 Dunedin. On a lonely coastal farm, a young widow confronts two crewmen from a German submarine who have come ashore on a secret mission – to get fresh milk.

Dunedin actor Peter Hayden (Under the Mountain, Power Rangers, The Light Between Oceans) has a prominent role in the film, and the lead is played by Arrowtown-born Jodie Hillock (Daffodils, Nothing Trivial, The Inland Road, The Bad Seed).

Come along to our exclusive screening to watch this sensational short film and have the opportunity to meet writer and director Pennie Hunt and producer Stefan Roesch. Get all your questions about film-making, CGI and German U-boats answered in the Q&A that follows the film.

Date and time: 5 – 6pm, Tuesday 14 May
Venue: Manaaki Restaurant, 51 Harbour Terrace
Admission: Free

Light refreshments will be provided. You are welcome to bring a partner or friend.
