A LOCAL'S TAIL, with love and laughter, introduces local characters, community colour, and the struggles and triumphs of the island pioneers, both past and present.
Independent filmmakers, Stewart Island Bunkhouse Productions, launch this charming invitation to browse through the island's history, guided by a local dog.
This quirky 40 minute film will be showing everyday throughout the summer in the big screen comfort of the Bunkhouse Theatre (opposite the DOC Centre).
Producers, Pete Davis and Penny Golias, hope to answer the myriad of questions that holiday makers have about the 'why' and 'how' of Stewart Island, from the most reliable of all sources - the pub (or more accurately, from the yarns overheard at the pub by a local dog).
See the board outside for daily session times and for $10 kick off your island holiday with a nugget of inside knowledge - straight from the dog's mouth.
