Join the Center for Academic Enrichment and the Center for Serve-Learn-Sustain as we screen “Ever the Land,” a documentary about one of New Zealand’s most independent Maori tribes, Ngāi Tūhoe, and their quest to construct a Living Building on their land. The new building is the binding character in this observational documentary that immerses us in a culture that is tightly woven into its land and an architecture that is defined by its integrity to it. This is a film about past and future, tradition and modernity. Most of all, though, it’s about the grandest hopes—and what it takes to fulfill them.
The film will be followed by a faculty-led discussion featuring Jennifer Hirsch, director of the Center for Serve-Learn-Sustain; Juan Archila, assistant director of facilities, College of Sciences; Juan Carlos Rodriguez, associate professor Modern Languages; Hugh Crawford, associate professor of Literature, Media. and Communication; and Drew Cutright, program manager, Office of the Executive Vice President and Outreach for the Georgia Tech Living Building.
