Aro Recommended Kaikohe Demolition


New Zealand 2004, 52 minutes
Dir. Florian Habicht
Genres: Documentary

Topics: Petrolheads.


Aroview: A glimpse into the mirth, mayhem and pathos of provincial New Zealand, this concerns a group of unkempt Northland residents who relish their opportunity to compete in the Kaikohe Demolition Derby.

The dir. of WOODENHEAD takes a fairly conventional documentary standpoint, but still fixes on the odd points of this engrossing pastime, in which near-derelict cars are reanimated with love and creativity only to be quickly pulverised. Perhaps most enduring are the scenes of good-natured banter in which locals unwind at the local hot pools.
