Crisis: One Man's Fight

Television (Full Length) – 1989

Just days after learning he had bowel cancer, Wellington actor Peter Vere-Jones invited a film crew to document his journey from the treatment process to the final outcome. This is a highly personal, and at times harrowing, account of a man coming to terms with his mortality. The co-operatively made documentary puts the audience squarely in Vere-Jones' corner. Although much of the doco was filmed inside Wellington Hospital, Vere-Jones' wit and insight paints a picture of a life far beyond those walls. Director Tony Hiles (Flight of Fancy) went on to make a series of documentaries about artist Michael Smither.  

This documentary began within days of the news, and follows Peter as he faces the disease which threatens his life.
