The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls + Q&A

Taking a record-breaking $2 million dollars at the New Zealand box office, the award-winning The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls is an hilarious and at times deeply moving documentary that tells the story of the twin sisters Lynda and Jools Topp: actors/activists/national treasures. Following a sold-out LLGFF screening Lynda and manager/producer Arani Cuthbert took to the stage for a discussion of the very New Zealand yet universally-identifiable themes of their story and the importance of using your political voice. They also touch on the values of fairness and justice instilled in them by their parents, resulting in their shared philosophy of "You can be who you want to be, and still change the world." All this, followed by an impromptu yodelling lesson.
