The Gathering was New Zealand’s biggest and best outdoor dance party, which was held every New Year for six years between 1996 and 2001.

This is the first Gathering documentary and was made about the 97/98 event, which was held at the magical Canaan Downs site on top of Takaka Hill near Nelson. The documentary includes behind-the-scenes views of the setup and running of the party; the wild and crazy days and nights of the party itself; interviews with the crew, and you – the party animals; and interviews with “grown-ups” like the Mayor of Tasman District and the local police.

    i just watched this and had a welling up of feeling and memory from the three g’s i went to in my teens. i haven’t thought about those parties for years but seeing all those smiling faces dancing with each other under the sun takes me straight back to that beautiful place.There was a place devoid of cynicism, malice, where everyone stopped being guarded and fearful for a couple of days and realized that happiness is not that hard a thing,that once people shed their skin we are all the same, and that losing your inhibitions doesn’t mean being uncontrollable or releasing your inner demons.
    I’ve been to plenty of raves, festivals and parties since then but none have come anywhere near the awakening that was the gathering. playtime for grown ups, dodgy dance moves on drugs, what ever it was,
    i hope i never ever forget those parties as long as i live.
    (and the trees, these trees are wicked!)
