The PechaKucha Night Edition of ReCooper8

PK_Featherston_Web_SmallOn Friday 7th November 2014, at the gorgeous Anzac Hall in Featherston, the Kokomai Festival and PechaKucha Night Wellington will bring you PechaKucha Night Featherston!  The theme for the Night is ‘Once Upon a Time’, and we have an amazing line up of presenters to entertain you!

October’s installment of ReCooper8 was dedicated to PechaKucha Night – what is it, who’s in it, why, where and how much!  Plus music from local Wellington talent, Oscar Doorne, and British band, Evans the Death. Oh, and of course Enrico is back with reviews of the films Pride, Get on Up and Frank.  You can listen to all this again by clicking on the sound file below.
