The Ground We Won

1h 31m Documentary, Sport 2015

AroView: A revealing portrait of contemporary manhood as observed through the rites and rituals of a rural New Zealand rugby club made up of died-in-the-wool dairy farmers in Reporoa, Bay of Plenty.

Filmed in black-and-white and set to a score by the New Zealand String Quartet, the film-makers give grace to their good-hearted subjects while not flinching from the more unsavoury aspects of tribal behaviour.

“A startling, ferociously intelligent, disturbing, heart-warming and hauntingly beautiful piece of film making… An instant national classic.” ~GRAHAM TUCKETT, DOMINION POST
