The Man in the Hat

Peter McLeavey has run his gallery in Wellington for more than 40 years, becoming a legendary figure of the city and the New Zealand art community. McLeavey travelled the world, discovered his Kiwi identity while living overseas and returned here to contribute to the country's culture as one of its outstanding art dealers. This documentary by Luit Bieringa ('Ans Westra: Private Journeys / Public Signposts') profiles an intriguing personality (as well as the city in which he plays such a part) in interviews, remembrances and narration by Sam Neill.
