Q: What connects 1980s pop heroes The Mockers, a murder over stolen pigs, and the introduction of fishing quotas?
A: Timaru

 

A 45-minute film by Stockholm-based New Zealand artist Amanda Newall. Connecting three seemingly disparate events that occurred during the artists’ teenage years in 1980s Timaru, the film is a reflection on the lingering resonance of life-changing events for individuals and communities in an era of radical economic reform.
