ELEMENT TV+ Wizard of New Zealand Interview

Jerusalem Cinematheque "Maundy Thursday" March 29th 2018:




Click on the Coverflow Gallery above for latest images from the Wizards Journey.

The Wizard of New Zealand has returned from two weeks of adventures with the Commodore of the Chathams Islands.

Included in the film while he was at Tokoniwa the Wizard of New Zealand appointed a New Wizards Apprentice for the Islands Jimmy Murphy.

Wizards Apprentice Jimmy Murphy (left) accepts the Wizard of New Zealand's invitation for a 1 year apprenticeship.
Wizards Apprentice Jimmy Murphy (Right) attends Erin Tuanui's function at the "Scout Den" with the Wizard of New Zealand (Left).

He is starring in a film titled THE WIZARD & THE COMMODORE - Rekohu/Chathams Islands - by Samuel Miller, which has been filming for the past few years.

The COMMODORE of the Chathams Islands (Right) & The WIZARD of New Zealand (Left) watch for Messages in a Bottle floating out to sea.

The Wizard sent a Peace Message in a Bottle with the kids in the Chathams Islands.

The Bottles were thrown in the Southern Seas along with many other bottles assembled by the kids containing messages of Peace from the children of the Chathams Islands. The bottles will hopefully go to the four corners of the world, anyone who finds a bottle will be invited to participate in the film!

Messages in a Bottle will be a segment in the Feature film which documents the culture and wild characters of the Chathams Islands.

The Wizard of New Zealand (182years old) on horseback converses with horseman Jack Moffat at the Bluff Station.

The Wizard went on to climb "Walk em Up" Mountain in the far distance - Dogs name is unknown. (anyone?)

The film documents, the Pitt Island Cattle Muster, Pig Hunting, Lobster Fishing, Moriori. Maori & colonial History plus the incredible landscape of New Zealands last wild frontier.

The WIZARD of NZ will be welcomed to the Islands, by the COMMODORE of the Chathams Islands, a genuine Chathams "Salty Dog", who had proclaimed himself as a double Commodore, and bumped into the WIZARD on his first trip back to the mainland in 10 years.

THE WIZARD & THE COMMODORE screens in cinemas February 2016

Trivia: The Wizard of New Zealand is now known by 3 names on the Chathams Islands - "Wizz", "Jack Spratt" & "Black Jack"
