ROHE KŌREPOREPO -
THE SWAMP, THE SACRED PLACE
Despite only occupying between 5 - 8% of the earth's land surface, wetlands hold between 20 - 30% of the earth's estimated global soil carbon. Wetlands provide the best natural defence against devastating floods and storm surges. This film explores the re-flooding, re-creation and restoration of our wetlands by 60 kaitiaki repo/swamp guardians from throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. as they restore our old and intimate relationships with Rohe Kōreporepo, our swamps, our sacred places.
