Richard Sidey


New Zealand landscape photographer, Christopher David Thompson and filmmaker Richard Sidey, head into the wild lands of Southern New Zealand on a ten-day sea kayaking and hiking adventure. The pair document the place and the journey in their own unique way.

This film is the contemplative and collaborative story that was the unanticipated result and a delightful musing on the explorations of art and adventure in the wilderness.
