“We might be poor, but we’re sexy”

– Mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit

----------

BROKE BUT SEXY is a documentary film series about the growing number of New Zealand artists living and working in Berlin, attracted by the rich culture and dirt-cheap rent.
 
For the artists, writers, musicians and dancers of Aotearoa, the traditional OE to London is an anachronism – which is just as well, because there are no jobs there anyway. Instead, the Kiwi art mafia, along with their contemporaries from around the world, are gravitating towards the German capital of cool. 
 
In doing so, the most laid-back nation on earth joins forces with its most uptight; its most brutally honest with its most passive-aggressive. The artists share stories not only about their work, but also the differences between art-making in New Zealand and Germany, navigating cultural minefields and getting horribly and hilariously lost in translation.
 
Our artists include musician Ladi6, painter Judy Millar, critical engineer Julian Oliver, poet Kate Camp, dancers Lisa Densem, Josh Rutter and Cat Ruka and theatre director Geoff Pinfield.
 

With help from the Goethe-Institut, but mainly from our own pockets, we have completed filming all of our portraits, and now we’re broke (but hopefully also sexy). Now we need your help to complete our post production (editing and colour correction).

 

As well as pledging actual money you can help by spreading the word about our Pledge Me campaign. Pass us on!
