ScreenTalk: Annie Goldson
Annie Goldson, NZOM, is probably New Zealand's most award-laden documentary filmmaker. She is known for her thought-provoking feature-length documentaries Punitive Damage, Georgie Girl, An Island Calling, and Brother Number One.
Goldson’s most recent documentary He Toki Huna: New Zealand in Afghanistan (made with Kay Ellmers) looks at New Zealand’s longest millitary engagement.
In this ScreenTalk, Goldson talks about:
- Working with ‘terrorists’ and ‘militants’ in the Counterterror documentaries
- The challenge of dealing with the Dili massacre in Punitive Damage
- How daily diaries helped shape Georgina Beyer documentary Georgie Girl
- Filming morally complex documentary An Island Calling
- The impact that post-traumatic stress had on filming Brother Number One
- A series of prescient questions in He Toki Huna: New Zealand in Afghanistan
