Hard Truths: the role of documentaries in a "post-truth" age

Sun, 27 Aug 2017 16:06:00 +1200

What are our expectations when it comes to seeing the truth on screen, and does our desire for good storytelling sometimes win out over it? Four leading documentary-makers - Gaylene Preston (My Year With Helen), Annie Goldson (Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web), Tearepa Kahi (Poi E) and Paul Oremland (100 Men) - gather with Julie Hill for a candid conversation about their responsibilities to the truth, and the uncharted waters they've navigated in their work. Recorded in association with the Pantograph Punch and the NZ International Film Festival.

Landmark study shakes up anorexia thinking

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 09:42:00 +1200

The very first study to identify the genetics associated with anorexia is changing the way scientists and clinicians think about anorexia nervosa. What they've found is the first genetic marker for anorexia nervosa (chromosome 12, in a region previously shown to be associated with type 1 diabetes and autoimmune disorders) and that there may be a metabolic as well as a psychiatric aspect to the potentially deadly illness. Anorexia affects an estimated 21,000 New Zealanders. UNC's Dr. Cynthia Bulik is the study's senior author and a former clinician at Christchurch's Princess Margaret Hospital and researcher at the University of Canterbury.
