AECT LOVES AUCKLAND Y&R_ Y&R_AEC0 AE 0072_ 2 TWM Warrior movie nabs big award Weighty award: The XIII FICA prize for feature films was awarded to Rainbow Warriors of Waiheke Island. By GILL ALCOCK Globetrotter: Susi Newborn travelled to Brazil and picked up the award on behalf of Dutch filmmaker Suzanne Raes. ' I am bringing the trophy back to show the others in the film. ' Susi Newborn A festival celebrating en- vironmental films from around the world has awarded a top prize to a movie made on Waiheke about the crew of the Rain- bow Warrior. The Festival International Environmental Film and Video, also known as FICA took place in the small, ancient town of Goias in Brazil, a recognised world heritage site. The festival was estab- lished in 1999 to provide a stage for the discussion of environmental issues and sustainable development not only on screen, but with workshops, roundtable talks, lectures and other activities. The awards took place on June 17 after all the films in the competition had been screened. Out of 800 films from around the world, around 35 were chosen to go into the competition, including the Oscar-nominated Wasteland. The winning movie in the feature films category, Rain- bow Warriors of Waiheke Island, by Dutch director Suzanne Raes, was up against six other films. It took the XIII FICA prize, a trophy and 15,000 euros. Waiheke resident Susi Newborn, who featured in the film, travelled to Goias to col- lect the award on behalf of Ms Raes. She says ironically the festival was sponsored by the company involved in deep sea oil drilling off the East Cape of New Zealand -- some- thing she has protested against. It is ironical because the biggest sponsor of the festival is Petrobras and here we are, the winning film, with those of us in it involved in the flo- tilla action against Petrob- ras.'' Ms Newborn says she made her feelings about Petrobras coming to New Zealand known to the press in Brazil. She says an interview she gave resulted in a long article published in the world sec- tion of the biggest newspaper in the state. Ms Newborn says the tro- phy is very heavy and comes with its own fancy box''. She is stuck in Buenos Aires due to the now three erupting volcanoes'' but hopes to make her way home soon. I am bringing the trophy back to show the others in the film, and then hopefully the Dutch embassy can get it to Holland somehow,'' she says. As for Brazil, she says she loved'' the people. They are so happy, so warm, so stunningly sexy and beautiful.'' Visit www.waiheke marketplace.co.nz to see a trailer of the Rainbow Warriors of Waiheke.
