HAIL, CAESAR! Class 12 Film Fundraiser: 6.15pm & 8.30pm

Titirangi Rudolf Steiner School Class 12 Presents -  Four-time Oscar (R)-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) write and direct Hail, Caesar!, an all-star comedy set during the latter years of Hollywood's Golden Age. Starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum, Hail Caesar! Follows a day in the life of Eddie Mannix, a Hollywood "fixer" for Capital Pictures in the 1950s, who cleans up and solves problems for big names and stars in the industry. But when studio star Baird Whitlock disappears, Mannix has to deal with more than just the fix.

Critics Consensus: Packed with period detail and perfectly cast, Hail, Caesar! finds the Coen brothers delivering an agreeably lightweight love letter to post-war Hollywood.

Runtime:   106 minutes

Certificate:   PG course language

Tickets:  Available from Titirangi Pharmacy; school office; travis.adams@trvtrading.org or ph: 021 70 40 30

 

Class 12 is carrying on an initiative started by the first Class 12 of 2013 to venture overseas on a Social Service and Cultural Trip.

They are traveling to Thailand in January 2017 where they will be working with two great NGO’s as well as undertaking cultural activities and sightseeing.

Firstly, they will be volunteering with The Branch Foundation at the Koung Jor Shan Refugee Camp which aids displaced ethnic Shan. This organisation was co-founded by one of the first Titirangi Rudolf Steiner School pupils, Iona Proebst. The Branch Foundation is doing amazing work in South East Asia and on the Thai-Myanmar/Burma border in particular. Iona has a degree in Social Anthropology and a Postgraduate Diploma in International Development from the University of Auckland. In 2014 she was awarded a Rotary World Peace Fellowship to study Peace and Conflict Studies at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok. Visit www.thebranchfoundation.org to read more about the organisation and the real difference Iona is making in the world.

And secondly, with the Elephant Nature Park (www.elephantnaturepark.org). This project supports elephants living free in their homelands, improving local community living standards, and working together with the local community while living in a cultural exchange in a mountain village.

This is their final “camp” together as a class - taking them out of their comfort zone to a world vastly different to their NZ lifestyle - an opportunity to experience real issues of the world and perhaps inspire ways to contribute to the future.
