Premier latinoamericana

Through one of the most independent and passionate Maori tribes in New Zealand –the NgāiTūhoe– this film explores the deepest and most sublime links between human beings and this planet where they live and prosper. 

“When the land is prosperous, man is prosperous”, says a Tuhoe native at one point in this documentary. That firm, unchangeable sentence runs across this first film by Sarah Grohnert. Because this is not just the story of a sustainable building (a living building), as there’s also a material connection forged between a particular space and the people living in it. The film thus portrays the intangible nature of a relationship of silent respect, absolute care, and eternal admiration. Gornhert joins that admiration, and that’s the richest element in this film, which seems to enclose yet another one: one that takes place in front of our eyes, and in the eyes of the director, who is constantly observing the Te Urewera national park while all this takes place.
