Director: Andrea Bosshard, Shane Loader (The Great Maiden's Blush)
Cast: Kobi Bosshard
This documentary is a personal portrait of Swiss-Kiwi goldsmith Kobi Bosshard. Regarded as a pioneer of contemporary New Zealand jewellery making, 78-year-old Kobi is the father of the film's co-director, Andrea Bosshard. Bosshard and Shane Loader (the duo behind award-winning movie The Great Maiden’s Blush) combine images of Kobi living and creating, with archival footage. As Kobi says, "the work we do comes out of the life we live, so we have to have a life to start with."
★★★★ "A quiet, unhurried, loving film, gorgeously well shot, a beautiful example of style serving subject: Kobi’s bone-deep belief in patient craft infuses every frame" (Metro NZ)
★★★★ "Beautifully laden with insights and philosophical gems" (NZ Herald)
