Annie Goldson

Director

Annie Goldson, NZOM, is probably New Zealand's most awarded documentary filmmaker. Her work — including the feature-length An Island Calling, Brother Number One and Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web — often examines the political through the personal. Goldson's films have played widely overseas, and won awards in New Zealand, England, Spain, France, the Philippines and the United States.

The trick in documentary it seems to me is how to provide historical context without oversimplification of history, while sustaining the narrative momentum of the personal story. Annie Goldson, to Listener writer David Larsen
