Ta moko artist and kapa haka teacher Sacha Utupoto Keating rides the Whanganui River on a journey to discover his whakapapa. Director Howard Taylor follows Sacha's personal story and the wider histories of the awa, weaving reconstructions, archival footage and lush river images into a rich story of people and place. "Taylor's investigation of the mythical, historical, ecological and spiritual aspects of the Whanganui River is deeply moving." said Grant Smithies in the Sunday Star Times."You're left entertained, enlightened and politicised."

Key Cast & Crew

I usually run a mile from docos containing too many historical "dramatisations" ... But writer/director Howard Taylor's investigation of the mythical, historical, ecological and spiritual aspects of the Whanganui River is deeply moving ... You're left entertained, enlightened and politicised.
– Grant Smithies, Sunday Star Times
