Aro Recommended Ever the Land



Synopsis: Documentary exploring the sublime bond between people and their land through a landmark architectural undertaking by one of New Zealandís most passionately independent Maori tribes, Ngāi Tūhoe.

The setting is the forest region of Te Urewera, the film captures period of change and tremendous foresight as Tūhoe negotiate an apology and settlement from the Crown, and construct an architectural gem of a community centre using radically sustainable methods. Tradition and environmentalism are brought together, and the film gives us a stirring depiction of indigenous pride.

“Gorgeous, elegant, and breath-haltingly profound.”
