Aucklantis was shot in 2007 in spare moments as I roamed Auckland doing routine things. It's an urban landscape/self-portrait film about dream and reality. In some ways Aucklantis was the sketch for Oracle Drive, my later feature set on Auckland's North Shore. Both films try to remap or reinterpret the urban environment in unexpected and evocative ways. The rawness and thrust of Aucklantis is unlike the eerier vibe of Oracle Drive. This 2014 re-edit is, I hope, the definitive cut.
