Gordon Tovey was a man on a mission to encourage Kiwi kids to express themselves through art and imagination. His ideas and his legacy are examined in Luit Bieringa's new documentary, The heART of the matter. In it, pupils and teachers from his post-war education programmes talk about how Gordon Tovey and other like-minded leaders changed - everything. The film opens at the International Film Festival. Lynn Freeman talks to Luit about the film.
