Waimate Conspiracy, The


Aroview: With good jest, this disarming rural mock-unmentary unravels the story of a group of local Waimate Maori contesting the ownership of tribal land after discovering a 138-year-old cannonball in a Canterbury paddock.

While those of a legally minded disposition may have problems with its accuracy, and the genre elements seem a little awkward, this is a rather enjoyable wee debut for writer/director Stefen Harris (whose day job is as a police officer!), with a winning performance by Jim Moriarty as the family head.
