Six Angry

Women

Directed by Megan Jones.

In 1984, six female terrorists kidnapped an Auckland University Lecturer, assaulted him and chained him to a tree in a violent political action.  The event triggered debates about gender politics and vigilante justice that divided New Zealand and led to social change. But the mysteries of who the six women were and why they attacked the man they did have remained unsolved.  With the resurgence of feminism,  filmmaker Megan Jones started to wonder if she’d missed an incredible story that was right under her nose. See the man who was kidnapped was a drama lecturer named Mervyn Thompson and Megan’s mother – who was one of his students - was in the thick of it. 

 
Three decades after the bizarre attack, Megan reopens a cold-case and tries to find out not only who the six women were, but what drove them to such an unprecedented action. 

(2020, Documentary, 1:30:00, New Zealand)
