In spring one plants alone...

On my to see list is Vincent Ward's latest film which documents the story of Puhi, an aged Maori woman and Niki, her dependant son. Here's a wee synopsis - The world they occupy in not a world of large events but the rituals of everyday life, traditions and interdependence. Filmed over a period of one and a half years, it emerges as a rare, haunting and powerful portrayal of their life together. This is the story of their rituals and of their survival. The small and disconnected instances that we encounter form a lone vision of the rifts and the bond between an old woman and her disturbed son.
