Those of you who know and love Briar may be interested to know that the launch of her documentary Allie Eagle and Me on DVD is happening 6pm Thursday February 1 at Corban Estate Arts Centre, Waitakere City. The DVD is being launched alongside the opening of The Big Picture: A Working Process, an exhibition featuring a huge new work by the inimitable Allie Eagle and other pieces by Allie and her atelier, as well as a brickwork installation by Peter Lange. If you happen to be in Waitakere on Thursday evening, pop along - after the official launch there will be a spit roast (koha appreciated), film screening and various entertainments that reflect the cultural groups present in Waitakere and which are featured in Allie's painting. You can even purchase the DVD.
More information about the film and the DVD can be found at allieeagleandme.com.

I'm giving a short speech on Briar's behalf so please come, sample the complimentary wine and, when suitably lubricated, make a supportive response!
