Aroview: The creation of NZ’s national museum, Te Papa, was an exciting, self-conscious and fraught journey in defining the nation’s identity, this documentary revealing just how deep feelings ran.

Given unprecedented access, the filmmakers not only capture many a back-room showdown, but manage to elucidate some of the controversies that continue to swirl about this institution. ‘Stars’ Ron Trotter and Cheryl Southeran.
