Get your pogo on and join us in celebration of New Zealand Music Month with "Sheen of Gold" (2013), a documentary on the Skeptics.

"Directed by Simon Ogston ('Rumble & Bang' + 'Gone With The Weird'), 'Sheen of Gold' tells the story of one of New Zealand's most influential and innovative bands, that throughout the 1980s combined traditional instrumentation with electronic sounds to make some of the best music this country has produced." - Flying Nun

"A tribute to one of New Zealand's most influential and eclectic rock bands of the 80s: the incomparable Skeptics. Improbably originating from small-town, late-70s Palmerston North, they began as a cacophonous high school punk band. Bassist Nick Roughan admits their earliest recordings ‘should stay dead and buried’, but with charismatic frontman David D’Ath, Skeptics soon gained a cult following and outgrew their provincial roots. Wellington beckoned, as well as a new spare, electronic sound. Ogston compiles interviews with all surviving band members and a wealth of rare archival footage, including Skeptics’ controversial ‘AFFCO’ video." - New Zealand International Film Festival

This screening is presented in partnership with AUT and Colab.
