The wild life to be found in the spectacular mountain landscape of the Waitaki water-shed in the South Island of New Zealand. Alpine flowers, native birds, and their nests, deer and fawns, the salmon coming up the river to spawn are among the beautiful creatures in this wild and isolated area.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
