I usually run a mile from docos containing too many historical "dramatisations" ... But writer/director Howard Taylor's investigation of the mythical, historical, ecological and spiritual aspects of the Whanganui River is deeply moving ... You're left entertained, enlightened and politicised. Critic Grant Smithies reviewing Te Whiringa Taura o Whanganui
