A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
In this film, I have the opportunity to travel to New Zealand with my family and film it all ourselves. This will be the farthest and longest we have ever travelled together. The purpose of the trip is to learn about some of New Zealand’s conservation and restoration efforts, while hiking some one of the most beautiful “tracks” in the world—the Routeburn hike near Queenstown. My daughter Emma and my wife Beverly are both curious to learn about animal welfare here; the sheep, the possum, the stoat, and a fabulous alpine parrot called a kea. My son Will is very excited to see the landscapes he knows so well from the films made by Peter Jackson and Christopher Nolan. We explore the Dart River and Milford Sound then end with a visit with Gerry McSweeney, one of New Zealand’s pre-eminent conservationists, where I test a new 360 degree camera. Once in a lifetime!
