Voices of the Land: Ngā Reo o te Whenua is a documentary about Dr Richard Nunns who has dedicated the last thirty years revitalising tāonga pūoro (traditional Māori instruments).

The multi-layered documentary has Dr Richard Nunns and Horomona Horo visit breath-taking locations across the South Island, including Ngarua Caves at Takaka Hill. Dr Nunns sheds light on the connection between the sounds of the instruments and that of the landscape.

Director Dr Paul Wolframm talks about the experience of filming the documentary with Justine Murray.
