The Kaikōura branch of the Green Party are hosting the Blenheim premier screening of the recently released film Seven Rivers Walking – Haere Mārire. This has been really well received at the film festivals around NZ/Aotearoa and is essential viewing for anyone with an interest in the future of our rivers.

The film looks at the rivers that meander across and define the Canterbury Plains. With the cleanliness of Aotearoa's waterways being a contemporary talking point, the film examines the impacts of farming and industry on the rivers that supply livelihoods and drinking water to the people of Canterbury.

In the polarised political environment of 2017, this film is a disarmingly peaceable one. It places the hope of change in a shared love of Canterbury’s rivers and riparian environments and a profound appreciation of their ecology. Filmmakers Gaylene Barnes and Kathleen Gallagher have taken their cues from the diverse collectives of Cantabrians who have been walking and rafting the length of the rivers, from the mountains to the sea, to educate themselves and others, about the damage done and the opportunities available for remedial action. Anglers, rafters, trampers, Ngāi Tahu, Fish and Game, Forest and Bird, natural scientists, farming families, old and new, all bear witness, some as designated experts, all as sentient inhabitants of the only planet we’ve got.

Tickets are available at the Greens Stall at the Saturday Over the Tracks Market or from Jennie Crum at kiwicrums@gmail.com. There will be door sales, but tickets are limited.
