Gone Curling...

New Zealand 2011 / 25min.
Director/Producer Roland Kahurangi, Rachael Patching.

In the deep south of New Zealand, Central Otago is the last place in the world that still up-holds the traditions of outdoor curling. At its heart is Naseby, a town of character and community, bound together by their love of curling. They hunger for hard frosts and freezing lakes but their passion for ice is now been tested. A changing climate means that curling outdoors may soon become a thing of the past and these passionate curlers may never again be able to compete for New Zealand’s oldest sporting trophy — the Baxter’s Cup.
