In February 2022, two protest convoys simultaneously began in New Zealand – from Cape Reinga at the top of the North Island and from Bluff at the bottom of the South Island. Their destination was parliament grounds in Wellington. And what would happen when they got there would become a defining moment in the country’s history.
We Came Here for Freedom is firstly a documentary film about that event. But as it grows, it is also an evolving historical archive of the stories, art, film, photography and music of the convoy… and a reminder of why freedom of speech and unity are essential to New Zealand’s future.
