'A Seat At The Table' to air at 2019 NZIFF

“Are we deserving of a seat at the table of the world’s finest yet?” Filmmakers David Nash and Simon Mark-Brown pose the question in their new documentary highlighting pivotal moments in NZ winegrowers’ ascent in the international market.

A Seat at the Table is set to air at the 2019 NZIFF and offers 100 minutes of eye-popping camera work, picturesque vineyards and gratuitous grape shots in this sumptuous homage to the talent and the stories behind New Zealand’s world-famous wine industry.

Franco-Kiwi discussions compare NZ’s key wine styles, the screwcap versus cork chestnut, New Zealand’s growing wine identity and questions around whether we’re really deserving of top-table status.

The musical soundtrack for the documentary was composed by LA based kiwi songwriter Greg Johnson, who tastefully expresses the gravitas and complexity of the visual created around this traditional, centuries old craft.
