The Man in the Hat

1h 13m Documentary 2009

AroView: Sam Neill narrates this intimate portrait of veteran art dealer Peter McLeavey, commemorating his 40 years in the business of running an independent art gallery in Wellington’s Cuba Street.

Still walking to work in his seventies, and using a typewriter and fountain pen as his primary business tools, this leisurely, loving tribute reveals him to be an extraordinary gentleman and indeed, worthy subject, as it too explores the byways of New Zealand art history and the bohemian vibe of a Cuba Street past and present, which as Peter puts it, is “not just a street, but an attitude”.
