In addition to our other corporate projects, we have also produced about a dozen documentaries for other production houses or television stations. Since 1997, we produce documentaries within our resources and we hold full rights. We currently have three documentaries ready for purchase.
Meet the Prick
Activist Tame Iti stands up for his people. Uncompromising, ambitious, he’s Tuhoe first, Maori second, and would claim Aotearoa as his country ahead of New Zealand.
In a unique 26-minute documentary, Tame Iti responds to the man behind the camera – Ilya Ruppeldt, acclaimed filmmaker from the former Czechoslovakia. But the story is about far more than one Maori. It’s about a clash of cultures and values as seen from Iti's unique point of view.
Lords of the Wine
At one stage, New Zealand was known mainly for its sheep. Now the country has burst upon the world scene with wines of matchless flavour...
Lords of the Wine is a unique insight into the New Zealand wine industry.
The 58-minute documentary is compiled from material filmed under different seasonal conditions in all the major wine regions of New Zealand over eight years. Award-winning filmmakers Golem Productions combine their own independent work with shots taken on commission from some of New Zealand’s top wine producers.
The Wedding, Close Encounters of the Gypsy Kind is a story about Gypsies from Central Europe - persecuted in their homelands of the Czech Republic and Slovakia, who found refuge in New Zealand. They live now in a multi-cultural society where there is supposedly no prejudice against them. However, they have to cope with new challenges and their own (new) prejudices...
The Wedding is a film based around the wedding between a young Gypsy refuge man and a native Maori girl in New Zealand.
However, the film is about much more than just a literal wedding. It details a more metaphorical side of the “wedding” between two contrasting cultures; documenting the “close encounters” of Gypsies with New Zealanders as well as with other minorities in New Zealand, such as Indians and Chinese.
This is a timeless documentary about refuge, humanity, idealism, multi-culturalism and most of all – love and home.
