The ultimate book for film lovers.

Film critic, Sale of the Century and Mastermind winner Hamish McCouall spent several months in darkened rooms watching films to produce this brilliant and unusual selection.

It encompasses short films, feature films, documentaries and digifilms. Yes, The Lord of the Rings and Whale Rider are here, but so too are Kaikohe Demolition and Tongan Ninja. The book includes details on where to get hold of these gems so you can watch them in your own darkened room.

From the 1920s when Ramai Hayward produced New Zealand's first, astonishing films, New Zealand cinema has blazed a trail, pioneering new ideas, techniques and images – and turning many directors, actors and cinematographers into international stars. For the first time, this beautiful book brings together and celebrates the industry's best, from startling shorts, to groundbreaking documentaries, to features that have taken the world by storm, won Oscars and become modern classics.

Author Biography:

Hamish McDouall, a lawyer turned journalist, has written for The Observer, the Listener and Public Address. He is the author of the biography Chris Cairns.
