‘We are the change.’ Nowadays, this phrase is a common leitmo- tif in documentaries focused on a better world. The future is in our hands but for this to have meaning we must take steps to preserve what we have in our garden or on our plate. Filmmakers Jordan Osmond and Antoinette Wilson have col- lected stories from their road trip around New Zealand to show- case truly inspirational stories inspired by nature.

Like the successful movie ‘Tomorrow’, each initiative and individual effort appears to be the key to revolutionising our lifestyles.

From the composter and the forester to the vegetable vendor who sells kitchen garden produce to the school canteen, everyone is getting their hands dirty.

The landscapes of New Zealand offer a breath of fresh air. Here we do not showcase what has gone wrong but what is working. The blue and green tones intensely dominate the visual of the film. It is a wonderful world on our door- step. This film is a real pleasure to watch and showcases real solutions that can be emulated.
