AS IT IS IN HEAVEN - Sweden 2004

"An internationally famous conductor goes from being a big fish in a
big pond to being a big fish in a small pond when he returns to his
childhood village in search of peace and rest. But he stirs up
painful memories and jealousies when he takes on the role of choir
master in the tiny community. The choir is a platform for bringing
characters together but also for revealing the chasms within the
village and within relationships. The rural setting underlines the
isolation of the village, focusing the drama to its very core
elements: the nature - and the danger - of community..." — Andrew

This is a parallel story of two families and two cultures: one Sikh,
the other dyed-in-the-wool Anglo, set in suburban Otahuhu in South
Auckland. Food and love are intertwined in this tale of two mothers
who must find the courage to confront the secrets and
misunderstandings of the past, in order to set their sons free. It
explores the boundaries of nurture and control, mothering and
smothering, and how we sometimes have to let go of our individual
sense of what is 'right', to do what is 'good' for all. This
irresistibly local celebration of recognisable real lives on the big
screen ends fittingly with cups of tea.
