Ten years in the making, Kiwi polymath Anthony Powell matches his technical skills as a resident engineer with a genuine film-maker's instinct for storytelling and eye for beautiful images - his breath-taking time-lapse photography also serving as an ingenious device to condense information and enrich experience. Replete with his own down-to-earth, personal presentation, the result is richly educational, philosophical, and nothing short of a vicarious thrill.
