A: Timaru 

The Hoover Diaries is a new 45-minute film by Stockholm-based New Zealand artist Amanda Newall. Connecting three seemingly disparate events that occurred during the artists’ teenage years in 1980s Timaru, the film is a reflection on the lingering resonance of life-changing events for individuals and communities in an era of radical economic reform.
