Kathleen Gallagher and Gaylene Barnes have released a new film tracking the paths of the seven rivers of the Canterbury Plains and Christchurch City.

The state of our waterways looms as an election issue and is central to their film Seven Rivers Walking - Haere Marire.

The film has been released in the New Zealand Film Festival and tracks 70 kaitiaki - fishermen, local iwi, farmers, artists, rafters, scientists, trampers - as they walk, raft and cycle seven of Canterbury's rivers over seven weeks to Easter 2017.
