Which New Zealand films are the important ones - the ones that film academics call "canon", meaning the undoubted milestones in our comparatively brief history of internationally accliamed films? Massey University's Dr Brian McDonnell is about to launch a series of books, each one devoted to the most important New Zealand films. And he's kicked it off with a film that many critics agree may very well be the greatest - Brad McGann's In My Father's Den.

The books will be available through Kakapo Books
