The Hollow Men

The most explosive book in New Zealand political history is now a film. Don Brash stepped down as leader of the National Party in November 2006, the day before the release of investigative journalist Nicky Hager's book, 'The Hollow Men'. Award-winning documentary maker Alister Barry ('In a Land of Plenty') brings this expose of behind-the-scenes politics to life in an all-too-real political thriller. Based on thousands of confidential emails, reports and memos written by Brash and his closest advisers, 'The Hollow Men' is an extraordinary story of unprincipled and anti-democratic politics.
