ABOUT

1996, 46 minutes


This is a warts-and-all tribute to one of the country's best-known, best-loved and most colourful literary figures. In a tiny house in the South Otago settlement of Kaka Point where he wrote prolifically, Hone Tuwhare allowed a film crew to observe him at home, and travelling the country reading his work. The result is a punchy portrait of a remarkable poet and a great New Zealand character. 

Working with Hone was a blast. I stayed friends with him for the rest of his life, and he enriched mine, and thousands of others through his wonderful words.

SUNDAY STAR TIMES - Angela Walker

14 October 2007 | Rating: 4/5

Gaylene Preston's documentary on artist Rita Angus hits all the right notes: informative, visually compelling, humorous and touching. Angus's life and work is discussed and dissected by some great onscreen talent including Sam Neill, artist Jaqueline Fahey and Marti Friedlander. A lively and loving look at one of our cultural icons.
