‘Obrero’ film screening

All are invited to attend an on-campus screening of the documentary, Obrero next Monday, 6 August.

The largely untold story of the thousands of migrant workers who came to Christchurch from the Philippines following the earthquakes, Obrero details the Filipino workers’ involvement in construction and related industries to help rebuild the city, including the UC campus. 

The workers talk about their dreams, their lives in Aotearoa New Zealand and the contribution they’ve made to our city.

Director Norman Zafra will be available for a Q&A directly following the screening. Zafra is a Filipino documentary maker, currently completing his doctoral studies at Auckland University.

  • Date: Monday 6 August
