The capture and release of the French agents who bombed the Greenpeace ship, Rainbow Warrior was not the end of the affair. This film documents the circumstances of the crime, but is focused on efforts by Greenpeace, and artist Chris Booth to create a sense of emotional closure. Booth worked with the Ngati Kura people of Matauri Bay to create a sculpture marking the Warrior's last resting place. The film interweaves the back story of the bombing with sequences showing the efforts to finish the sculpture in time for commemorations.

It is always great to see history preserved and portrayed globally so we don't forget. The biggest regret was it took a life to move forward.

Ngati Kura.



A fabulous commentary on the warrior featuring mainly on the aftermath and aspects of the memorial. A downloadable copy would be great for classroom use. Particularly useful for young New Zealanders to reflect on and encourage further research into groups like Greenpeace and their importance in International affairs.
