Auckland's Centrepoint commune was closed down in 2000, and its founder Bert Potter jailed for drug crimes and sexual abuse of minors. Angie Meiklejohn moved to the commune with her mother and three siblings in the late 1980s when she was 15. She tells Kim Hill, in 2019, that participating in the documentary ‘Angie’ has lifted her shame about what happened there.
