Ever The Land continues to make waves

Posted Sunday 06 Aug 2017

Sarah Grohnert's doco, Ever The Land, about the remarkable Tuhoe building is still going strong internationally, two years after first hitting the festival circuit.

Ever The Land explores the sublime bond between people and their land through a landmark architectural undertaking by one of New Zealand's most passionately independent Maori tribes, Ng?i T?hoe.

There are three screenings coming up at Green Film Fest in Buenos Aires at the end of August. Also an award nomination at India's largest environmental Film Festival, CMS Vatavaran, with a November screening at the Gandhi museum in New Delhi. And finally an early November screening at Friday Harbour Film Festival in San Juan Island in Washington, US.

For those who missed out watching it in NZ, it's always available online via Vimeo on Demand. Congratulations, Sarah!
