TrinityRoots - Music Is Choice

Film (Full Length) – 2010

Built around generous stacks of live footage, this 70 minute documentary traces the journey of beloved, genre-blending band TrinityRoots. It explores touring, epic album sessions, and the bond  — both light-hearted and deeply felt — between members Warren Maxwell, Rio Hemopo and Riki Gooch. Other musicians and critic Grant Smithies play tribute. The documentary chimed in with the band's rebirth: TrinityRoots reformed in 2010 after five years apart, the same year that the Music is Choice documentary/live album emerged. Gooch left the trio the following year.

The first time I heard 'Aotearoa', hard and cynical music critic that I am, I genuinely wept, which doesn't happen very often.
– Music critic Grant Smithies
