              "It's another hospital trip in the witching hours for Sylvie, as part of the support crew for her crazy sister, Calamity Cate. An overdose, this time. As usual, it seems like the family is so caught up in all of Cate's drama that Sylvie goes unnoticed. Invisible. Always coming in... second. Not anymore. After a makeover, a friendship breakdown, and a whole lot of pizza, Sylvie starts to get noticed, but by the wrong people. That's when things unravel with painful consequences. Visibility, Sylvie discovers, is not about how other people see you, but how you see yourself"--Publisher's website. First person recount.

              A war hero who refused to fight, students who stood up to Hitler, a ship that sailed into a nuclear test zone, a whole town which practiced non-violence. Peace Warriors tells the dramatic stories of people who chose non-violent resistance in times of conflict--stories of young me...n and women from New Zealand and around the world. Young readers will discover that peaceful resistance can be as effective as military force, and that people power can change history.

              Goblin Market: 2016 Short Film Edition
               

              Goblin Market: 2016 Short Film Edition (Paperback)

              By Rossetti, Christina G.

              • RRP: $20.00

              Christina Rossetti's 19th century masterpiece, Goblin Market, is a dark, allegorical fairy tale about two sisters, Laura and Lizzie, which explores the universal themes of eroticism and desire, addiction and betrayal, sisterhood, sacrifice and, ultimately, liberation. Our film re...-imagines the poem in a contemporary setting, with a modern day seduction in a drug-infused underground club. When this ends in betrayal, Laura dwindles in a pall of withdrawal and despair. Desperate to comfort her sister, Lizzie sets out to procure the drug she craves, but instead finds herself on a wild headland overlooking a boundless sea. Here the goblins await her. Lizzie is drawn into their bacchanal, discovering and fully embodying her own sensual power. Triumphant, she returns having won the fiery antidote to Laura's poison, and then watches as she fits and writhes, not knowing whether it has saved or killed her. But the next morning, entangled, both women wake as from a dream - to begin anew. Crossing the world to its antipodal point, our film draws both from its roots and from the spirits of this land on which we stand, to bring to life Rossetti's mythic, feminist anthem. One which speaks to the power of women, united - with each other and with our own essential nature, our wildness and eros - to uplift ourselves, and one another.

              Ian Harris's `Faith and Reason' columns - which have featured in the Otago Daily Times for the past fifteen years, and in The Dominion Post and Touchstone as `Honest to God' - argue that Christianity in this millenium is not the paradox it appears to be but religion at its most c...reative.
