Marti: The Passionate Eye is a film about leading New Zealand photographer, Marti Friedlander. Friedlander arrived in New Zealand from London in the late 1950s and photographed the country partly as a way of coming to terms with what she saw as its foreignness. In the process she captured aspects of New Zealand that familiarity had made invisible to its inhabitants, and created an important record of its social history.

Marti's photographs were fundamentally about New Zealand in a way that I dare say a New Zealander could not have captured because when you're born in a land you become blind to it. You no longer see the beauties within.
