The Last Resort

Opposition to the sale of a 60-year-old camp ground at Mahia is the subject of this fascinating documentary as long-time visitors and local residents team up with well-known activists such as Moana Jackson, Murray Horton and Rod Donald, eloquently putting their case for common entitlement and resistance to 'overseas investment'. Closely related to the Seabed and Foreshore legislation, this is a microcosm of events that, if let out of hand, will have a major impact on the traditional kiwi lifestyle. A must-see.
