A documentary of the development of the Wellington central city region.
In less than two decades, the world's southern-most capital has changed beyond recognition.
Outside war or natural disaster, few cities anywhere have changed tehmselves so quickly or so completely.
From one of New Zealand's leading filmmakers, this major documentary achieves a deft balance in detecting the causes behind a massive urban upheaval without losing sight of the effects it has had on the lives of its inhabitants.
In the '70s and '80s, masses of Wellington buildings were demolished because they were considered an earthquake risk. This film interviews the movers and shakers behind the building boom and talks to those who can only see the loss of local heritage and culture.
