Those looking for this on DVD can order a copy from Aro Video in Wellington. Since these copies are "on demand", be patient as it may take a bit longer than usual to receive.




...aaand a lovely place to end that excerpt :P. I loved this doco back in the day, it's kind of still relvant now. That lonely road and stark haunting landscape prevalant like a supporting character in NZ movies

Hi Mary,
I agree an updated version would be very interesting.
I think Aotearoa Film has changed a lot and has split into multiple streams.
What the Cinema of Unease did was try and define New Zealand through film, a definition I think many New Zealanders yearn for, something for a new pot-luck culture to grab onto and something that represents them. Whether LOTR/ the new Peter Jackson represents New Zealand or New Zealanders is a highly topical idea, something that personally I do not feel entirely represented by.
Links to illusion by cinema and tourism are loaded concepts.

This for example... Really??

Hello To All,
Cinema of Unease was one of the first video's I purchased... Back in 1995 I purchased it from New Zealand... How exciting, I was going to visit New Zealand and get insight from my favorite actor Sam Neill... The package arrived along with a New Zealand post mark... Ripping the package open I popped it into my VCR...
What a beautiful country, it's mountains, lakes, so tranquil...
Fast foreward to 2008, my question is to Sam Neill, and others who have seen CoU?
Wouldn't bringing CoU up to date be a fantastic video or DVD? I'm sure so much progress has been made, along with the New Zealand Film Industry; Lord of the Rings come to mind; also many block buster films have filmed portions of their production in New Zealand...

Anyone feel an upgrade to CoU would be a great treat? How about it Sam?

Mary Ann
