Hi Jason,
NZ On Screen's terms of licensing changed for KINGPIN and it's only possible to show an excerpt.

Also, the film has been digitally remastered through the NZ Film Commission. You can purchase a copy or rent the remastered version of the film at NZ Film On Demand here:

https://ondemand.nzfilm.co.nz/#!/browse/film/840/kingpin

Thanks,

my name is wayne and i was in the centre from 1961-1963,i could write a book about life in that place where we did have kingpins and we learnt our place.one story was we had this kingpin called herbie and two of us myself and a little guy called zebby thought that this guy was a bully so we got him in a room and beat the crap out of him.in 1962 we had this a maori pakeha stand off where we all split into two groups maoris on one side and pakehas on the other,went on for weeks.i was one of the first in the forestry and we did have fun up there.i also escaped once.i got into trouble after that and went to borstol where i met over half of the levin boys again,like coming home to my brothers and that is how and where the mongrel mob began when we all met again outside.some kingpins were good people others were bullies cheers wayne
