The film that moved a nation.
It's 1971. Never before and never since have hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders queued to see a film about their country and its people, the way they used to queue for rugby tests and royal visits. Unique in the history of New Zealand film, this National Film Unit documentary showcases the landscape and people.
This DVD also contains an interview with director Hugh Macdonald and others who re-visit the making of the film and tell the story behind the technical and artistic challenges they faced to create a three-screen, sound-surround film using 1960s film technology.
