'Ever the Land' explores the sublime bond between people and their land through a landmark architectural undertaking by one of Aotearoa's passionately independent tribes, Ngāi Tūhoe.

For 150 years, the relationship between the Tūhoe Maori tribe and the New Zealand government was defined by longstanding grievances arising from colonisation, such as illegal land confiscations and the devastating consequences of scorched earth policies. 'Ever the Land' captures a period of change and tremendous foresight: Tūhoe are negotiating an apology and settlement from the Crown, and constructing an architectural gem of a community centre using radically sustainable methods.

This timely and respectfully observational documentary provides a stirring depiction of indigenous pride. Tradition and environmentalism are brought together to realise a unique and important architectural vision and acknowledge all it stands for.
