Wellington premiere of "Ο Ηρακλής, ο Αχελώος, και η Μεσοχώρα" (Heracles, Acheloos and Mesochora, with English subtitles). The movie will start at 3.30pm after the AGM tea/coffee break as the AGM is being held same day at 2.15pm (all welcome) in the TTC Hall.

"The village of Mesochora, as well as the paternal home of the documentary director, is on the banks of the Acheloos river, in the mountain range of Pindos. The area, however, is flooded by the artificial lake created by the diversion of the river.

The documentary unfolds the incredible story of the hostage of the village, the family tragedy of the director himself, and the admirable struggle of the inhabitants of Mesochora."

We would like to thank the director and ERT for providing this film to us free of charge and to Elias Pavlidis for organizing the film to come to Wellington.

More info on Facebook page for Hellenic New Zealand Congress or on Eventfinda.

Direction: Δημήτρης Κουτσιαμπασάκος

Script: Δημήτρης Κουτσιαμπασάκος Cinematography: Yorgos Papaioannou

Editing: Yorgos Savoglou Sound: Nikos Paliatsoudis, Antonis Kypreos, Yorgos Petroutsas

Music: Vangelis Fampas Production: ERT Production

Country: Greece | Production Year: 2019

For people in the southern suburbs, don’t forget to use your wheelie bin clip, or avoid putting your recycling out if you can to prevent items being blown about.
And don’t forget, if you’ve got a backyard trampoline or anything else that could take flight, tie it down!
PS. wrap up warmly – it’s going to be good weather for polar bears!

Wellingtonians will have to learn their ones, twos and fives all over again as the city council prepares for more plastic going to the tip.

Wellington City Council has announced it will only be recycling some types of plastics as much of what we put in our recycling bags needs to be sent to volatile markets overseas for recycling.

The new rules come into effect on July 20 - amid Plastic Free July - and will mean only plastics numbered one, two, or five - except meat trays - will be accepted in recycling.
