Fancy feeling uplifted for three minutes? This documentary short from New Zealand imitative Loading Docs tells the story of Faye and Joe Gock who came to the country from China as refugees in the 1940s and used their knowledge of growing crops to save the kumara plant – the sweet potato to us. Now in their 80s, the couple are still lively, funny, and very down to earth. Joe also created New Zealand’s first seedless watermelon, so stay tuned for the next instalment.
