  • Arts on Tour NZ - Central to the Soul, South Island Premier.

Selected for the 14th International Doc Edge Festival earlier 2019, Central to the Soul had a World Premiere in Auckland and Wellington. Now the film is coming home to where it was filmed, featuring the Roxburgh Pioneer Energy Brass Band, local personalities, stories and locations throughout Central Otago. Jim Mora reviewing the film on RNZ said “I have one criticism of the film… it could have been twice as long, with beautiful shooting and so charming and moving the way it captures communities”. The dam at Clyde, Lake Dunstan, the loss of orchards and rise of vineyards, the money and the movers all tell the story of communities in motion.
Director and film maker Bill Morris illustrates his film with performances from Hopetoun Brown in Tarras Hall, Adam McGrath in Arrowtown, Helen Webby in Bannockburn, Flora Knight and Sean Donald in Lowburn, Michael Hurst in Roxburgh and Rollicking Entertainment at large. He gently and subtly examines these stunningly beautiful locations, as folk gather to enjoy performances throughout the Central Otago and Queenstown Lakes district.

A film by Bill Morris funded by Central Lakes Trust, Arts On Tour NZ and the Otago Community Trust.

Filmmaker Bill Morris and Executive Producer Steve Thomas will be present to answer any questions at the conclusion of the screening.
