AUTOLUMINESCENT (short article/review):
Rowland S. Howland: Death of the Party (New Zealand Herald, Mar 31, 2012)

“Rowland wanted the film finished whatever happened and facing mortality was one of the reasons he first wanted us to make it,” says Richard Lowenstein, who with Lynn-Maree Milburn produced Autoluminescent.

“He said the film should be [as much] about chronicling what was happening to him at the time as it was about recording the past.”
