Green Kiwi in­ge­nu­ity

Element - - UpFront -

Trav­el­ling the length and breadth of New Zealand with her seven-year-old son Con­nor, Emma Heke has found the en­vi­ron­men­tal cham­pi­ons of this coun­try and fea­tured them in her new doc­u­men­tary ‘Our Green Roadie’.

The film fea­tures pi­o­neers in green tech­nol­ogy such as Bill Rucks from Wa­ter Alchemy in Nel­son, who heats his hot wa­ter and fu­els his gas stove en­tirely from house­hold waste; en­vi­ron­men­tal ste­wards like Mel McCol­gan from Waimaori Stream­care; to or­ganic pro­duc­ers in a range of in­dus­tries.

What it lacks in cin­e­matic panache it more than makes up for with its up­lift­ing sto­ries. Visit face­book.com/OurGreenRoadie for more in­for­ma­tion and to pur­chase the DVD.
