Abe is a 58 year old Maori man and lives on family land in Takahiwai, North Auckland. He “knots” native trees when they are saplings and leaves them for 15-25 years. He learnt this from his father and has been doing this since he was a young boy. Follow Abe as he takes us through a process that can take up to 25 years and see the final results of his unique craft that he gifts to whanau and friends.

The Reel People of New Zealand
New Zealand | 2016 | 30 min | English | Nicholas Homler
Inspired by Geoff Lealand's Cinemas of New Zealand website www.cinemasofnz.info, young American film-maker Nick Homler takes a journey through New Zealand, visiting small and independent cinemas along the way. He encounters projection booths from years gone by, cinemas returning to Christchurch post-earthquake, local communities bringing back film to their town, a wedding in a Waikato cinema, and a very unique viewing experience on Stewart Island. This film is about the past, present and possible future of film-going in Aotearoa.
