Filmed in 2002, this documentary observes a group of people living on the streets of Wellington. After being moved on from Cuba Mall, the group makes their home by the Cenotaph (near Parliament) and sets up a "village of peace". Led by the dreadlocked 'Brother' they attempt to gain an audience with the government; their self-proclaimed marae provokes police, public, politicians and media. Reviewer Graeme Tuckett called the film a "landmark in New Zealand documentary making". Brother (aka Ben Hana) later gained a local profile as Courtenay Place's 'Blanket Man'.
The film is honest, troubling, at times very funny, and always compelling to watch. It is an essential piece of cinema, and a work (but not a story) that Wellington should be proud of.– Graeme Tuckett, in a 17 December 2003 Capital Times review
