Broke but Sexy is a series of short films about New Zealand artists living and working in Berlin, attracted by its rich culture and dirt-cheap rent.
The project is a collaboration between German filmmaker Gaby Lingke and New Zealand journalist Julie Hill.
Broke but Sexy is in the form of seven separate profiles:
- Ladi6 is a New Zealand-Samoan musician living in Turkish Berlin.
- Choreographers Cat Ruka and Josh Rutter debuted a work about the Treaty of Waitangi in Berlin.
- Media artist Julian Oliver won media art's biggest international prize, Prix Ars Electronica, for his 'Newstweek' project last year.
- Dancer Lisa Densem is working with Germany's best-known contemporary dance company, Sasha Waltz & Guests.
- Theatre director Geoff Pinfield talks about his great-grandfather, Paul Henckels – a famous actor allowed to stay in Berlin during the war making propaganda films, despite being half-Jewish.
- Painter Judy Millar explains why she's a hermit in New Zealand but a social animal in Berlin.
- Poet Kate Camp talks about the faint shame of being a 'war-nerd' in Berlin.
The screening is followed by a Q&A session with Julie Hill.
Supported by the Goethe-Institut.
