The Gaylene Preston collection by NZ on Screen
Publication Date: 2022
Kiwi filmmaker Gaylene Preston has been charting stories of love, war, calamity, and inspirational women for four decades. We're excited by the many riches in this collection: it offers the chance to sample Preston's early work and memorable documentaries (War Stories Our Mother Never Told Us, Titless Wonders), plus full-length movies (Home by Christmas and Perfect Strangers) and TV dramas (Hope and Wire). There are also tributes by Three movie critic Kate Rodger, cinematographer Alun Bollinger, and archivist Danny Bultitude — and this excerpt from Preston's new autobiography Gaylene's Take - Her Life in New Zealand Film"
