Allen Curnow was one of the greatest of New Zealand writers, with a major international reputation. Winner of 7 New Zealand Book Awards and the Commonwealth Poetry Prize, he was the first person outside Britain to receive the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry. This is the only documentary to explore Curnow's remarkable life and work. It's a compelling close-up portrait of a man who worked on the cutting edge of literature for nearly 70 years. Beautifully filmed by Leon Narbey, with music by Jonathan Besser and Douglas Lilburn, the film takes Curnow to the scenes of many of his most important poems - from New Zealand's South Island landscapes and Auckland's West Coast beaches to the streets of Rome. It provides vivid access to Curnow's work by dramatised versions of his poems and by his own fascinating comments on writing
