Helen Clark, named by Forbes as one of the 25 most powerful women in the world, is coming to Victoria on Saturday, June 23 to The Vic Theatre for the screening of "My Year with Helen!"

 

Tickets are running low, so don’t wait: http://bit.ly/MeetingHelen

 

Clark became New Zealand’s first female prime minister in 1999 and then went on to serve three terms in office. After that, she spent seven years as administrator of the United Nations Development Program until 2016 when she announced her candidacy for UN Secretary General.

 

Filmmaker Gaylene Preston follows her in this campaign, revealing the human side to politics as Helen fights to enact change in one of the highest positions in the world. Join organizers after the film as we welcome Helen Clark to The Vic Theatre for a Q&A.
