Shadowland in Fiordland

Ata Whenua is a fantastic movie I saw in a Te Anau theatre 2-3 hours away from Queenstown. 32 minutes of incredible scenery from NZ’s first world-heritage area (the whole UNESCO list here) from the best movie-makers and fabulous music to accompany the visual treat! It screens only in that theatre and I got so lucky to stay in the small town overnight. For 10NZD, I could see everything (Milford Sound, some isolated rocks and a lot more) as if I were on scenic heli-flights through the park across the seasons. You can also order it online (52NZD=1500INR for shipping to the US, you have to mail them for shipping to India). A must for the arm-chair traveller!

Quote from the plain UNESCO brief description:

“The landscape in this park, situated in south-west New Zealand, has been shaped by successive glaciations into fjords, rocky coasts, towering cliffs, lakes and waterfalls.”
