There's a new New Zealand movie due out this February and I want to see it. I found the song below and loved it. The movie is The Pa Boys.
I wandered off and discovered this interview with the man behind it all, Himiona Grace - director, writer, photographer and musician too.
I desperately want to see it but I guess I'm waiting until it comes out on DVD.
Listening to Himiona's story unfold brought back memories of a weekend spent at a writing workshop on Stewart Island with Himiona's mother, one of New Zealand's best writers, Patricia Grace. And then he's married to New Zealand writer Briar Grace-Smith. Someone I missed the arrival of by virtue of losing track of New Zealand's arts scene. He loved the anonimity of this ... he was either Patricia Grace's son or Briar Grace-Smith's husband. Meanwhile, he's quietly got on and created something marvelous. Or so it seems.
