New Zealand Stories - The Womad Wrangler

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2011

One reason Womad Taranaki is so successful is because it builds on New Zealand's vibrant, welcoming culture.
– Narrator Chris Nichol on Womad Taranaki's success
There was a number of people I think, that saw a wonderful thing happen in Auckland but it failed. There was a vision to bring that to this place and to make it work and it shouldn't...it just shouldn't in a population base this size; on paper this was madness.
– Taranaki Arts Festival Trust Chief Executive Suzanne Porter, on New Plymouth taking on the Womad festival
Lost kids, blocked toilets, fake IDs, and fence jumpers are part of the hundreds of problems that face the site manager of Womad every year.
