Every year around 20 000 New Zealanders make a pilgrimage to England. This film takes a satirical look at a group of them at a party in London in 1983.
Thousands of New Zealanders have gone to London for their overseas experience. They might as well have stayed at home. They get to London, go straight to a party full of New Zealanders and talk about life back home.
Permanent Wave is a social satire about an entire Antipodean generation comfortable with what it knows best.
