Aro Recommended Man In The Hat, The


New Zealand 2009, 73 minutes
Dir. Luit Bieringa
Rating: [Exempt]
Genres: Documentary / Arts & Artists

Topics: Business.


Aroview: Sam Neill narrates this intimate portrait of veteran art dealer Peter McLeavey, commemorating his 40 years in the business of running an independent art gallery in Wellington's Cuba Street.

Still walking to work in his seventies, and using a typewriter and fountain pen as his primary business tools, this leisurely, loving tribute reveals him to be an extraordinary gentleman and indeed, worthy subject, as it too explores the byways of New Zealand art history and the bohemian vibe of a Cuba Street past and present, which as Peter puts it, is "not just a street, but an attitude".
