Aroview: A breakthrough for New Zealand's fledgling art cinema, this impressive first feature finds a beguiling middle ground between fiction and documentary in its tale of enduring love across cultural and geographic barriers.

Shot evocatively in both the Hauraki Gulf and Beijing, Duncan's close attention to theme and poetic form has given rise to a film of quiet ambition, with the director's real-life parents and their Waiheke Island home lending it an authentic sense of place, character, and history.
