ScreenTalk with Gaylene Preston
NZ on Screen, NZ, October 2009
In this ScreenTalk interview Preston talks about how she started film making, thanks to a job as an art therapist in an English asylum. She discusses the films Mr Wrong, Ruby and Rata and Bread and Roses. She reflects on her long time interest in 'the stories that hold secrets, the things that you're not allowed to talk about', and discusses the role and status of New Zealand women directing film, then and now.
