For the first time in Auckland, Helen Clark will attend a screening of MY YEAR WITH HELEN for Q&A after the session.

Demand.Film is presenting the one-off special event on Sept 6 to celebrate Suffrage 125, this September’s commemoration of 125 years since New Zealand women won the right to vote.

MY YEAR WITH HELEN is the film by renowned director Gaylene Preston, which followed Clark through her 2016 campaign for United Nations Secretary General, while also working on global development issues as Head of UNDP and staying in daily contact with her then 94-year-old father back in New Zealand.

Preston will also be at the Q&A, lending her insight into the process.

Since the film’s international premiere at the Athena International Women’s Film Festival in New York in February, it has been shown in special event screenings in 19 cities around the world from Tokyo to Washington DC to London, including the Google Campus at Palo Alto, The Flying Broom International Women’s Film Festival in Turkey, Rarotonga and Fiji.

The coming months will see it going to Korea, Bangkok, South America, Spain and Canada and more.

Many of these international screenings have hosted Helen Clark and Gaylene Preston for Q&A sessions, where the discussion has been lively, inspirational and motivating for audiences in a wide variety of places and circumstances.

MY YEAR WITH HELEN has enduring relevance and popularity in this time of #TimesUp, since it is the story of Clark’s resilience in the face of entrenched sexism in one of the world’s largest organisations. Female audiences worldwide are able to relate this demonstration of the existence of the glass ceiling to situations in their own lives and workplaces.

They also delight in the sharp wit Clark reveals in the Q&A sessions and in the behind-the-scenes revelations from Preston about her struggle to make the film.
