    on next week as part of the documentary film festival:

    In 1949, celebrated cameraman Brian Brake, script-writer
    James K Baxter, composer Douglas Lilburn and painter
    John Drawbridge travelled the rough rounds around Lake
    Wanaka and into the gabled Matukituki Valley to make a
    fi lm about a climb around Mt. Aspiring. During the trip
    Baxter wrote script notes that turned into his famous poem
    ?In The Matukituki Valley?. Drawbridge said that for him,
    the journey marked ?a point of artistic origin?. The fi lmmakers
    were helped on the mountain by famous alpinists
    George Lowe, Ed Cotter and Harry Stevenson but the
    weather wreaked havoc with the plans.

    8:10pm Tuesday 3rd Oct at the Paramount. Tickets $14
