The Ground We Won has been touring the film festival circuit being invited to some of the world’s premiere festivals. The New Zealand doco is beautifully filmed in black and white and follows a rural rugby club and the lives of the men involved.
The Ground We Won is a vérité documentary study of manhood as observed through the rites and rituals of a rural New Zealand rugby club. With great bawdiness and camaraderie, an eclectic rugby team of farmers strive to redeem themselves from a long run of bitter losses.
In the face of the hefty demands of farming and fatherhood, the Saturday game becomes the focus of the men’s passions and the ground on which their worth is proved. With incredibly privileged access inside this sacred men’s zone, the film captures a fascinating season of traditions, debauchery and friendship, as the men reclaim their faith in themselves.
