Michael King - History Man product reviews

History Man, a feature length documentary, follows in the steps of Michael King on a journey through his own past - to childhood places where the sense of New Zealand and his own New Zealand-ness first struck him, and to the places his work steered him and the incredible people he met along the way.

His ability to cross cultural boundaries and delve deep into sometimes controversial areas greatly enriched New Zealand's recorded history. His tragic death early in 2004 was an enormous loss to this country.

I found History Man to be a perfectly adequate and typical documentary about an exceptional Kiwi historian. It is not the kind of documentary that would be of particular interest to those who are not already drawn to the people who quietly write our histories and venture to place our past into context.

That said, for those who are interested in learning about Michael King and his work I'd recommend this documentary as an apt introduction. The focus of the documentary, Mr Kings work in chronicling Maori history, is interesting and highlights what a great contribution he made when it comes to understanding the history of Maori, and the history of New Zealand as a nation of unique identity.

It is unfortunate that Michael King himself died before being able to contribute to his story, as I'm sure he would have injected his passion of history into the documentary.
