Kiwi Ingenuity on Screen

Posted Wednesday 14 Dec 2011

The Last NZ On Screen collection for the year showcases that ingenious and inventive Kiwi spirit. No 8 wire' Kiwi ingenuity is defined by problem solving from few resources (No 8 wire is fencing wire that can be adapted to many uses, an ability that was particularly handy for isolated NZ settlers). Embodied in heroes from Richard Pearse to PJ, Kiwi ingenuity is a quality dear to our national sense of self. It has been memorably celebrated, and sometimes satirised, on screen.  Check out the collection here.
