Gordonia is a 2010 feature documentary film directed and produced by New Zealand filmmaker Tom Reilly.

Filmed over the course of seven years Gordonia follows the struggle between West Auckland landowner Graham Gordon and the former Waitakere City Council over Gordon's car wrecking business and illegal dwellings. As well as Gordon's story, the film traces the lives of several tenants living on his property, some of whom have mental health problems and claim to have nowhere else to live.
