Documentary: The Ancient Watcherby Noted
A documentary film by Monika Krochmal, selected for the DocEdge Film Festival
The Ancient Watcher is a portrait of this unique artist. A lyrical tale of art and nature, where trees become mythical heroes and the carver unearths ancient treasures and shares their secrets with us. Kerry Strongman talks about his Maori heritage and how it influenced his art and his life philosophy.
The film by Monika Krochmal is about origins, survival, beauty, myth and memory; a contemplation of nature and the human condition.
