A watery portrait of our urban landscape reveals that when it comes to our cities, there is more than meets the eye.
From the canopy of aging skyscrapers to the abandoned pipelines below ground, this visual dissection of Auckland City searches for traces of Waihorotiu, an ancient waterway situated in the city centre. Through archival imagery and animation the film explores the history of Waihorotiu, and the relationship between urbanisation and waterways.
