The Delicate Journey of Documentary Film

Ever the Land director Sarah Grohnert discusses her connection to the film’s story, which explores sustainable architecture and development in New Zealand.

Sarah Grohnert is a director/ editor with a particular taste for films that fully immerse the audience in the experience of a place, people and story. She originally trained as an editor in her native Germany before studying directing at the Arts Institute Bournemouth, UK. Sarah emigrated to New Zealand in 2010 and since has been working on a number of award-winning projects across film and television. Ever the Land is her first feature documentary as director. She is currently also in development for her first fiction feature film.
