Ms Information is a documentary film that centres on one of the most controversial Kiwis of recent times. It looks at the busiest two years in the life of microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles, who told us what to do when the pandemic struck.
In March 2020, Wiles stepped into the public eye and spoke out to keep New Zealanders science-informed just when the pandemic was about to hit.
The film reveals a small nation under pressure, confronted by a new type of leadership that excites, incites and polarises while traversing motherhood, misogyny, misinformation and identity through the lens of a mother and scientist who becomes a celebrity in extraordinary times.
Directed by Gwen Isaac, the documentary is a time capsule that releases in cinemas on the 26th of October.
