¡Vivan las Antipodas!

A globe-spanning, feel-good documentary that examines the contrasts and harmony between pairs of natural wonders. Each pair is connected by being diametrical opposites on the Earth's surface.

"In Entre Rios, Argentina, two brothers drowsily contemplate life's mysteries beside a remote river, where they can only imagine the river of humanity that floods the streets of Shanghai. A woman and her daughter in rural Russia find their opposite number in a Patagonian shepherd with a herd of cats. The lava beds of Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano echo the folds of a Botswana elephant's skin, and the bulk of a beached whale in New Zealand recalls a rock formation in Spain – or vice versa."(San Francisco International Film Festival 2012)

One of the 'antipodes' shown is Castle Point in New Zealand,...
