Continuing her rich tradition of documenting Kiwi artists, Shirley Horrocks presents a comprehensive biopic of Peter Peryer, one of our most important photographers.

The access to Peryer at his home in Taranaki before his death in November 2018 makes this the most definitive documentary that will ever be produced on the artist. Clips from a 1994 TV doco add further depth to the richly told stories, but it is Horrocks’ one-on-one time with Peryer amongst his vibrant gallery of work that beautifully frames the man and the artist. His home is alive with work past and future, with curiosities on every shelf and nature ready to inspire in every corner.

Peryer’s well-known prints are richly illustrated on screen, including Dead Steer, the Mars Hotel series and the Erika portraits. Expert commentary from industry figures Jim Barr, Luit Bieringa and John McCormack access the importance of his photography in New Zealand’s art history. Anyone unfamiliar with Peryer’s work will become a ready convert through the course of the film. It is an essential homage to the great photographer’s life-long dedication to seeing and creating works of art out of the everyday. - Rebecca McMillan
