Director: lorian Habicht
Director Florian Habicht's (Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets) new documentary goes behind the scenes at New Zealand's largest and most heavily attended scare park. As night falls at Spookers, dozens of seemingly ordinary people become freaks, zombies and chainsaw-wielding clowns. Every weekend come rain, hail or shine, this diverse group of amateur performers unite to terrify punters at the southern hemisphere's largest scream park, situated in a former psychiatric hospital. Director Florian Habicht reveals the transformative and paradoxically lifesaving power of belonging to a community that celebrates fear.
A hosted discussion will follow the film.
