Woodville hit the internet last year, but if you haven’t seen it, check it out. The series was selected for Raindance and received funding from NZ On Air for production.
Sid is the main character and he’s a documentary maker who has never made a documentary. He’s just been given loads of money by the Woodville Arts Council (WAC). They want him to go out and make a documentary about how the people of Woodville took on the might of the Belgian Petrochemical Corporation, and won. Kind of like that Erin Brockovich lady. With less, y’know, cleavage.
