Thirty years ago New Zealand was on the verge of economic collapse. Today, the country is a driving force in international trade, economic leadership, healthy environmental practices, and is the flagship for sustainable fishing practices. Johan Norberg examines this transition led by an unlikely alliance of farm owners and maverick politicians who broke a system of excessive privileges that was choking the nation. The one-hour documentary introduces us to the extraordinary people who've built new lives for themselves, their families, and their fellow Kiwis by seizing the economic opportunity that resulted from economic reforms.

After the screening, there will be a Q&A with documentary host Johan Norberg. Norberg is the Executive Editor at Free to Choose Media and a senior fellow at the Cato Institute. The discussion will be led by Leon Grice, Consul General of New Zealand.
