As the same old faces of the Right roll out the same old failed neoliberal ideas in new packaging, it’s a useful time to rewatch Alister Barry’s fantastic documentaries on what happened the last time round. In many cases even the faces haven’t changed.
Someone Else’s Country examines the devastating effects of the neoliberal revolution on New Zealanders as a privileged few plundered our common wealth. NZ on Screen has just put the whole documentary online. Appropriate timing.
Alister Barry’s excellent follow-up, In a Land of Plenty, is available at NZ on Screen too.
