In the early 60s a bunch of kids met playing in the extreme wilderness of New Zealand. The adventure they discovered in tapping the forces of nature changed their lives - and the world. A global quest for adventure paradise in 45 years of stunning original footage. Written by
Inspirational, beautiful, intriguing, genuine and modest. These are the words that spring to mind when I think of this outstanding documentary.
Clive Neeson's story makes me want to explore more boldly, become more educated and contribute my time more generously to the world around. It also makes me feel damn lucky to live in New Zealand. Although not preachy, I can't help but feel inspired by the powerful environmental message that becomes self evident throughout the film.
There is so much breadth and depth in this film's topics that I found myself inspired to pursue even more information about some of the characters, topics and inventions.
Without question, Last Paradise is one of the most unique, original and entertaining documentaries of this genre that I have seen. It deserves a large global audience.
