Aro Recommended In a Land of Plenty


New Zealand 2002, 112 minutes
Dir. Alister Barry
Genres: Documentary / Sociology

Topics: Politics.


Aroview: Described as ‘the story of unemployment in New Zealand,’ this serves as a strong companion piece for SOMEONE ELSE'S COUNTRY, dir. Barry’s popular history of the Rogernomics era.

Seeking this time to demonstrate how the mass unemployment from the 1980s to the present day was not an accident, but a deliberately planned strategy of the market reforms, this utilises interviews with politicians, Treasury and Reserve Bank officials, Trade Unionists and others. Narrated by Ian Johnstone.
