The story of one man, Colin McLaren, and one tiny island, Rakino in the Hauraki Gulf – off the grid, challenging and stunningly beautiful.
The first film made in New Zealand post-Covid, The Man on the Island by Simon Mark Brown, makes its Taranaki premiere, telling the story of one man, Colin McLaren, and one tiny island, Rakino in the Hauraki Gulf – off the grid, challenging and stunningly beautiful.
The 77-year-old artistic, philosophical and erudite man moved to the remote island thirty years ago. Colin's own path to a reclusive lifestyle unwittingly shines a light on society's plight in a pandemic.
