In Aotearoa the Wairua is the force that animates each human being. In dreams the Wairua may wander abroad to places beyond the reach of the body, even to Te Rerenga Wairua, the world beyond the world of the living.
– From the intro to the film
I learned a lot about sound from Doug (Hood), like how miserable NZ sound effects libraries were back then. Doug went out with a portable recorder and grabbed everything from buses to cicadas. It was like having Phil Spector do your effects, without any of the pistol-packing loopiness ... it was Doug who suggested the unmixed instrumental of The Clean’s Point That Thing for the psychedelic finale.
– Director Joe Wylie on website Public Address, December 2011
