Title Standing place / a film by Ana Tovey ; Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology
Published Brighton, England : University of Manchester, Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, 2007


Description 1 online resource (31 min.)
Summary A full-scale fibre glass model of Stonehenge has been built in rural New Zealand, functioning like the original, not only in its astronomical alignment but also in its role as a ceremonial site. This film explores what 'Stonehenge Aotearoa' means to the people involved with it - those who built it, the neighbours, local tangata whenua (people of the land) and those who use it as a sacred space for rituals. Is this a construction of an inauthentic connection to the land for Pakeha (white) New Zealanders or does it open up a new space for working through the complex identities of a multi-cultural post-settler society?
