Opening Night at the Rialto

A great opening night! Fabulous feedback – with lots of superlatives being bandied around. The very thing to warm the cockles of a director’s heart. And it was nice to watch it with an audience without the nerves I experienced at the screening at the Film Festival in Auckland last year. That time it had never been shown to a general audience and I didn’t know how they’d take it; this time I had enough confidence in it working to relax and enjoy the event myself.

Several people remarked how they saw new things in the movie on a second viewing.  And I myself find it interesting how it seems subtly change with each successive audience.

I’m off to New Plymouth tomorrow for another Q and A at the Arthouse Cinema. I’m curious to find out how it will go down in the provinces. There’s no reason to think they won’t enjoy it. The film is a curious beast – an art movie that is accessible to the general public (if I don’t say so myself!)
