Kim Hollows has flown over the region for over 27 years, gaining a very unique perspective and seeing many sights that no land-bound traveller could see. He decided to capture the images of this unique landscape and with the help of professionals and his helicopter team produced a 30 minute visual essay of the land and the life forms it supports. His story follows the movement of water as it descends as rain, running down the steep landscape to form streams, then rivers that carve out spectacular landforms as it makes its way to the sea. The viewer also sees the unique flora and fauna that inhabits the area over time (through the seasons) and space (from the highlands to the beaches). This visual spectacular is accompanied by original music often using traditional Maori instruments.
There is no speech during this video, leaving one to just marvel at the sights and sounds, and envy Kim for having one of the best offices on the planet. It is THE souvenir I would recommend for people visiting the area, or even just coming to NZ.
Highly, highly recommended.
Trip info: the film plays daily/hourly at the Fiordland Cinema in Te Anau, New Zealand. If you are enjoying the many great reasons to make Te Anau a stop on your journey, don't miss the opportunity to see this at the cinema.
