Additional Description More Details

Bryan Bruce was a teacher for 10 years before he become an award winning documentary maker. He believes the switch to self-managing schools has proved a disaster for children living in poorer areas of our country, that the way we administer our public schools is getting in the way of teachers doing their job and that to produce creative young thinkers from our schools we need to radically change the way we assess the talents and abilities of our children.

What is the purpose of public education? Are we teaching our children in the way that will best prepare them for a future that no one can predict?

Wildcat

Price: NZ$26.00

This price is for home use only.
Libraries and institutions etc., price on request.

Format: DVD
Aspect Ratio: 4:3
Duration: 70 mins
Year: 1981

Wildcat is the story of the timberworkers struggle and it’s bitter aftermath told by the workers themselves – bushmen from Kaingaroa, millhands from Kawerau and Waipa, stacker drivers from Kinleith: Maori and Pakeha, novices and old-time union battlers.

Additional Description More Details

Discontent amongst timberworks over the running of their union had been simmering for years. Members accused the national executive of exerting dictatorial control and of making deals with management which left timberworkers with some of the lowest wages and worst conditions in the country.

In 1977 this anger erupted in the growth of a remarkable rank-and-file movement aiming to oust the incumbent leadership and bring democracy to the union.

Workers from six major sites in the South Auckland region banded together to form the Combined Council of Delegates and began a series of actions climaxing in a full-scale strike which brought the timber industry to a standstill.

“Wildcat is something of a landmark in New Zealand film-making… Throughout the saga and this film epic proportions are reached at all times, the intelligence, the wit, and the articulation of this group of predominantly Polynesian workers makes one wonder… There are even moments of genuine lyricism, for example, when the strikers gather food for themselves and their families, when one can suddenly imagine oneself in the midst of revolution.”

-Paul Maunder, Sequence (Wellington Film Society)
