Seven Rivers Walking - Haere Mārire

Film (Trailer) – 2017

Seven Rivers Walking - Haere Mārire looks at the rivers that meander across and define the Canterbury Plains. With the cleanliness of Aotearoa's waterways being a contemporary talking point, the film looks at the impacts of farming and industry on the rivers that supply livelihoods and drinking water to the people of Canterbury. Co-directors Gaylene Barnes and Kathleen Gallagher follow a group of Cantabrians who hike and raft the length of the rivers, and talk to locals en route about the significance of the region's waterways. The film debuts at the 2017 Christchurch Film Festival.

The city rivers of Christchurch and the braided rivers of the Canterbury Plains are in big trouble. Threatened by poisoning, plundering and encroachment – they are in crisis-mode, and people are getting more and more upset.
– From the film's press material
