NZ On Screen is showcasing its wonderful Chinese in New Zealand Collection. Meanwhile we encourage you to check out How Mr and Mrs Gock Saved the Kumara, produced by Arani Cuthbert at the Loading Docs link below. Having escaped the Japanese Invasion of China, Fay and Joe Gock fell in love in 1950's New Zealand. And it seems that nothing, even the fact that owning land was illegal for the Chinese at this time, could stop these two from becoming the largest and most sharing kumara growers in New Zealand.
If you're looking for something uplifting to watch, the Robyn Paterson-directed In The Zone, released in New Zealand cinemas last year, is now available via TVNZ OnDemand. The documentary film premieres in the USA next week with two screenings to honour Black History Month - one in Chicago and one in Los Angeles. In The Zone follows Terrance Wallace, a visiting American businessman who establishes a home for minority teens in New Zealand's most sought-after school zone.
