Landfall - A Film about Ourselves

Television (Full Length) – 1975

Landfall was an attempt to find a modern parable for the story of the founding of this country. It was intended to be a film about ourselves, as we find ourselves, here and now, and occasionally wonder why.
– Director Paul Maunder, in the programme for the 1977 Wellington Film Festival
I live in a country where people are constantly searching for a dream ... but always they bring with them the values of the old ... so it continues. But at least they have dreamed a dream.
– Elizabeth (Gael Anderson)
It is necessary to act.

We have no cause as such.. we’ve no need to convince anyone, except possibly ourselves.
– John (John Anderson)
