DYING TO LIVE (2018)

Deep beneath the complex world of organ and tissue transplantation are the heart-wrenching stories of real people awaiting life-saving organs in Australia. Why must they wait for so long?  Are changes in policy required – or shifts in perception? Or is it as simple as signing up and having the conversation with loved ones? Why do we avoid the topic of death? What does it take to support a family member running out of time as they await the generosity of strangers?  How difficult is it to offer the death of a family member as a chance at life for others?  And how much love and understanding does it take to make the compassionate decision to become a physical philanthropist?

FRACKMAN (2015)

FRACKMAN, a feature length documentary for cinema, tells the story of accidental activist Dayne Pratzky and his struggle against international gas companies. Australia will soon become the world’s biggest gas exporters, as more than 30,000 wells are sunk in the state of Queensland where Dayne lives with many requiring controversial ‘fracking’. He and his neighbours have unwittingly become the centre of a massive industrial landscape and they have little power to fight the wishes of the $200 billion industry. Dayne embarks on a journey that transforms him from conservative pig-shooter to sophisticated global activist as the Frackman. Five years in the making, he meets the people drawn into a battle that is crossing the ideological divide, bringing together a peculiar alliance of farmers, activists and political conservatives. Along the way, Dayne encounters  love, tragedy and triumph.

GOD MADE THEM BLIND (2008)

An observational 56-minute documentary about how Australian ceramicist, John Fawcett, is devoting his life to reducing the enormous number of cataract blind people in Indonesia, after narrowly escaping his own death….twice. His biggest challenge however, is convincing a nation that blindness is not God’s punishment. Four years in the making, it reveals how John’s life-altering quest brings him into conflict with Hindu beliefs in Karma and black magic, resulting in profound personal transformations on both sides.

ANTARCTICA DREAMING

Imagine a world coloured by ice and fire, carved by hurricane force winds, weighted by glaciers, carpeted by wildlife perfectly adapted to freezing conditions and winters of perpetual darkness: a world essentially inhospitable to man, still largely unexplored. It is the White Continent… Antarctica.

NINGALOO WHERE THE DESERT MEETS THE SEA

This program is the definitive look at Ningaloo: the largest and most pristine western fringing reef in the world.

Imagine sparkling turquoise water lapping against an ivory beach, bordered by a rust coloured desert in a remote region of Western Australia. Step off the shore and you see the reef, a sublime scene of plate and branching corals dotted with every type of tropical fish. Moray eels with pointy teeth poke out of crevices, clouds of pink and green parrot fish flit by and curious cuttlefish drift over hermit crabs and sea stars.
