Wakatipu - The Long Lake

Short Film (Full Length) – 1954

Deep away in the south of New Zealand lies a 52 mile stretch of blue water. Mountains crowd it close and trees line its shores. This is the long lake the Māoris called Wakatipu.
– Narrator
The long lake has a secret. These waters beat like the human heart, the level rising and falling every five minutes regularly through the hours and years ... and no one has ever explained why.
