From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:15 pm on 10 August 2015

Women of Pike River

This week is the world premiere of The Women of Pike River. The documentary profiles six women directly affected by the Pike River mine disaster, when 29 men died in a series of explosions in November 2010.

It looks at the industrial tragedy, and its aftermath as what the documentary maker calls, a "continuous chain of humanitarian failures". The documentary is directed by former newspaper, radio and TV reporter, Mary Durham.
