'River in Question'

This 1985 film we have been given permission to share is about a river, a beautiful unmodified river seen by some as a potential source of hydro-electric power, by others as an irreplaceable piece of wild New Zealand.

Through native bush, farmland and remote gorges, the film follows the Manganui-a-te-Ao from its source on volcanic Mount Ruapehu to its meeting with the Whanganui River.

Rare blue ducks, brown and rainbow trout and other natural values, together with Maori history and legends, are explored through the eyes of the scientists, anglers and white water rafters who seek to protect this unique river.
