WRITERS ON FILM: HONE TUWHARE
A glimpse into the life, art and inimitable style of the late NZ poet Hone Tuwhare. In 1996 Tuwhare allowed Gaylene Preston to film him at home, travelling the country reading to students, polishing a poem, drinking, and sharing his views on pretty much everything – Karl Marx’s love life, for example. The warts and all documentary includes footage of Tuwhare reading from his most loved poems Rain, and No Ordinary Sun.
