Adventures of Jonathan Dennis Book Launch

Last Wednesday evening we hosted a very special book launch at Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision: Emma Jean Kelly’s The Adventures of Jonathan Dennis – Bicultural Film Archiving Practice in Aotearoa New Zealand. Jonathan Dennis was the founding director of the New Zealand Film Archive (now Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision).

The speeches given at the launch by Diane Pivac, Emma Jean Kelly, Ray Edmondson, Lindsay Shelton and Rebecca Elvy recall Jonathan Dennis, and his vision for film archiving in New Zealand:
