          A farmer, teacher and priest undertake a daring mission to deflate a giant radome at the Waihopai spy base in protest at New Zealand's involvement in the US-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. An internet millionaire's mansion is raided sparking an investigation exposing illegal do...mestic surveillance by the GCSB. While the government rams through law changes legalising spying on its own citizens, an NSA contractor blows the whistle on the Five Eyes network of global mass surveillance. With the rise of the surveillance state in the digital age, and in an era of endless war, new battle lines are drawn in new territories and the enemy is sought out closer to home.

          A South Auckland petrol station is the setting for this independent drama about graveyard shift worker Tania (Sophie Henderson, also the film's writer and based on her one-woman stageplay), whose long nights are spent chipping away at the savings she needs to leave with her littl...e brother in search of their father. Raised Maori, Tania's bonds to her whanau underpin a life spent caring for her ailing mother during the day and preparing to take her brother Piwakawaka overseas. But as he leaves to pick kiwifruit and Tania is stuck at the gas station with a slack manager and an eagle-eyed regional supervisor, it seems she's not able to look after her family to the same extent. A product of the NZ Film Commission's Escalator scheme, this low-budget feature, shot in just 20 days, brings Henderson's piece to the big screen courtesy of first-time director Curtis Vowell

          When making this Bookbinding DVD series master bookbinder PETER GOODWIN kept libraries, rare book departments and special collections in the forefront of his mind. This license allows libraries and institutions to do this in addition to normal services. In this DVD, master bookbi...nder Peter Goodwin shows how he approaches this unusual binding. At the same time he demonstrates how he binds the traditional half-bound leather book which is seen in libraries all over the world. To make the maps in an atlas lie straight with no thread showing requires a special sewing technique. He demonstrates the use of the "plough". This was the old fashioned method of cutting edges before the guillotine was invented. It is rarely seen today and written explanations are hard to understand. However once seen never forgotten. Colored hand-sewn head bands, paper repair and traditional half-leather binding are also covered in detail. It is a treat to watch Peter Goodwin show how easy it is for beginners to work with leather. His no fuss approach is refreshing.

          PJ (Rangimoana Taylor) is a truckdriver with a workingman's pride in his job. His partner Ronnie (Carmel McGlone), her two kids bordering on adulthood, singing at the local pub and fishing with his best mate Jono (KC Kelly), form the backbone of his modest existence. But when he ...fails a mandatory eye test and loses his driving licence, PJ's life unravels. In the face of his imminent future as a blind man, the ever pragmatic Ronnie upscales her wedding dress business with the help of her ambitious older sister Bernadette (Geraldine Brophy) to become the breadwinner of the family.
