Californian city to get ‘marijuana innovation zone’

Lost city waterways

This week we came across Waihorotiu, a beautiful short documentary by Loading Docs about an ancient waterway under the streets of Auckland. The film uses the history of the Waihorotiu stream to explore the relationship between urbanisation and waterways: as the city of Auckland grew, Waihorotiu was turned into a sewer and made invisible, cut off from its spring and the sea.
