It was one of the most explosive moments in New Zealand’s political history. Now, a new documentary from director Tony Sutorius (Campaign) is lifting the lid on the Jami-Lee Ross saga.
After a fallout with National that threatened to bring the entire party down with it, Jami-Lee Ross sought a return to politics as co-leader of Advance NZ in 2020. As Ross led a campaign that seemed doomed from the start, director Tony Sutorius (Campaign) was with him every step of the way – from public meetings, to the Newshub Nation studio, and inside his own home.
Streaming on The Spinoff from February 21, and as we head into our next election cycle, Elements of Truth provides exclusive insight into a former senior MP turned political outcast as he attempts to stage a dramatic political comeback.
