James and Isey is the latest documentary from Northland filmmaker Florian Habicht. 

It tells the story of the then 99-year-old Isey in the lead up to her 100th birthday back in 2019. Isey lives on a small farm in Kawakawa with the youngest of her five children, James, who has devoted the last 20 years to looking after his Mum and helping her reach her centennial. 

The movie is a celebration of the incredible spirit of James and Isey. 

Habicht joined Francesca Rudkin to discuss his amazing subjects.
