About

From 1971 - 1975 the ever-changing BLERTA group toured throughout New Zealand and Australia. They wrote and played music, created and performed sketches and made films. They wrote scripts. They were the cast, set designers and builders, they created their own explosions and special effects, and shot it themselves on pieces of film and tape procured by whatever means.

Blerta was originally formatted as a six part TV series. In 2001, director, actor and producer Geoff Murphy reformatted clips from the series alongside other unseen footage into a feature length documentary. Blerta Revisited was the result.
