NZ: Stroppy Sheilas & Mana Wahines

Hauling a caravan behind a vintage Valiant, the Adventure Divas crew do New Zealand. Along the way they shoot pool with young film-maker Sima Urale, chill in Wellington with documentarian Gaylene Preston, are welcomed into the home of pop singer Hinewehi Mohi, into the offices of PM Helen Clark, get down on the marae with powhitu pro Tania Stanley, talk whitebait on the West Coast with reclusive Booker Prize winning winner writer Keri Hulme and no-nukes with Marilyn Waring. Adventure Divas is a Seattle-based new-media enterprise combining adventure travel and modern day heroines – a TV show screens on PBS in the US.
