The Women of Pike River follows a four year journey of six family members as they fight for justice, accountability and re-entry into the mine’s drift to retrieve evidence and the bodies of their loved ones.
This is the Pike River story that hasn’t been told. It’s a story of courage, fortitude and determination. A documentary that reveals the unrelenting, cruel rollercoaster ride of the mothers, sisters and wives, who were given hope and then kicked-in-the-guts at every turn.
An exceptional story of six exceptional women. The Women of Pike River is premiering at the New Zealand International Film Festival. Tickets on sale from 17th July.
