With the 2011 feature When a City Falls, 2014 mini-series Hope and Wire, and numerous short films based on the disaster, the horror of the Christchurch earthquake has been covered extensively on-screen. While we’re still waiting on the completed rebuild, The Art of Recovery casts its gaze on an unexpectedly uplifting transitional period that risks being overlooked: the moment that saw the community’s creative spirit ignite between ‘the ashes’ and ‘the phoenix’.
