Genuine New Zealand treasures Isey and James invite us into their lives in the week leading up to Isey’s 100th birthday! Florian Habicht, the director of Kaikohe Demolition, captures a Northland celebration of life and aroha like no other.
99-year-old Isey lives with her adult son James on their small farm in Kawakawa, New Zealand. They are descendants of Ngāti Manu – the Bird People. Isey is turning 100 in a week. In their unique relationship, James has devoted the last 20 years to looking after his mum. He is a tohunga (shaman) and brings the spirit world onboard to get her over 100. A joyous celebration of the sacred and everyday aroha.
