Plough Chains & Bees Arses

A rollicking account of a Kiwi who spent 25 years making films at the highest levels in Asia and round the world. It features the reality of corruption, the attraction of rogues and the wild roller-coaster thrill of making films in foreign countries.

From an inauspicious debut locked briefly in a prison cell he went on to film a climbing expedition in the Himalayas, a circus in Burma and a slightly blue feature film. He travelled the globe for some of the biggest multinational companies, filmed prime ministers and world leaders and did business with some very dodgy and colourful characters.
