Screening today: Episode 6 – "Land of Plenty"
New Zealand rock 'n roll now has confidence and diversity. Radio and television champions local music and for record companies New Zealand acts are a "must-have," no longer a "could-have" to sign up. In the mid-nineties a new sound blows in from South Auckland and one young group of rappers, the Otara Millionaires Club, emerges to produce the extremely catchy "How Bizarre," which becomes New Zealand rock 'n roll’s biggest international hit to date.

Screening as part of our Kiwi Music Film Fest season.
