The Great South Road has seldom been considered as more than a mere thoroughfare by most New Zealanders.

Filmmaker Paul Janman, writer Scott Hamilton and cinematographer Ian Powell want to change that. Having recorded a series of prolonged research walks with still photography, moving image and notebook, the three collaborators are now joined by a host of historians, tohunga, actors, gamers and community members in a journey through time, space, myth and reality on Auckland's infamous founding roadway. The end product of this work in progress will soon be a book and a documentary film.
