Graeme Tuckett’s lavishly illustrated documentary-come-tribute is constructed around a long revealing interview with the filmmaker, Barry Barclay and reviews his groundbreaking achievements.

"The Camera on the Shore is Barry Barclay's metaphor for the camera in the hands of indigenous people – who may or may not turn it back on the ‘ship people’ who have so readily turned it on them. When Graeme Tuckett turned his camera on Barclay, his subject was in poor health, but he had a lot going on: a book just published, a novel in the works and a film project to talk up. Nonetheless the interviews he obtained before Barclay's unexpected death in February 2008 have a ruminative, for-the-record weight to them that make the film as moving as it is instructive. Barclay reviews his early adult life and delivers his own quietly proud assessment of his groundbreaking achievements as a filmmaker. He talks about the issues – political, philosophical and formal – arising from his lifelong project of putting Māori experience on screen. Future generations will always have Barclay's remarkable films, but thanks to Tuckett's dedication they will now also have a vivid taste of a personal encounter with his ardent, testy intelligence." — Bill Gosden, NZ International Film Festival, 2009
