Water Safety New Zealand is conducting a review to consider the drowning deaths in the last five years. It is expected that the review will consider strategies and actions before mak- ing recommendations. WSNZ general man- ager Matt Claridge says preschool drowning incidents in New Zea- land occur at an unac- ceptable rate. Film makes Berlin festival Good exposure: Jackie van Beek's short film Go The Dogs has been selected for the Berlin International Film Festival. Photo: NICOLA MURPHY By NICOLA MURPHY Jackie van Beek's latest film project started with an abandoned farmhouse in Victoria and finished with a premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival earlier this month. Go the Dogs is one of only 14 short films out of thousands submitted worldwide to be selected and shown at the festival in the Generation cate- gory. Two other New Zealand-made shorts have been selected for the same youth-oriented section. This is Mrs van Beek's third short film. It was shot in Aust- ralia in March 2009. She got the idea to make the film after stumbling across an abandoned farmhouse that had been used as a hay barn. There was hay and dead rabbits every- where,'' the Avondale resident says. She decided it was a great place to shoot a film and started building a story around the location. Go the Dogs is the story of an autistic girl who discovers an aban- doned farmhouse and becomes friends with a runaway teenager who is squatting there. The lead role is played by Brittany Romijn, who was then 12 years old, and has special needs. Mrs van Beek says this made the film a challenge for both the actor and herself. The 34-year-old is thrilled the short film was selected for the festi- val. That turned quite quickly into semi-terror as we had to sort out the actual music in time to send a completed copy over to the festival organisers,'' the mother- of-two says.
