MAKING AN IMPACT
As a team, we spoke a lot about where would be the best place to premiere Dirty Power: Burnt Country. Naturally we talked about places with lots of people, exciting venues, wherever we might get the most eyes.
In the end, we chose to premiere the film on the South Coast of NSW, projecting the documentary onto the remains of Rodney’s family home that he lost in this Summer’s bushfires.
This film is for Australian families like Rodney’s. We hope this film contributes to a difference in the world that we know you want to see.
SEND THEM A MESSAGE
DIRTY POWER, THE UNSETTLING TRUTH
It was only three months ago when the Australian bushfire crisis came to a close after months of devastation. Since then, communities have been picking up the pieces left behind in this black summer’s wake.
There’s no doubt that we are in testing times. We are faced with some of the greatest challenges to our livelihoods we may ever face.
While this past black summer was not a season we’ll soon forget, our politicians are acting like it never happened. Amid the chaos and uncertainty of the COVID-19 global health crisis, Australia’s leaders have been paralysed on climate policy, which needs to be in place to ensure that this summer of catastrophic bushfires is not the first of many.
Now is the time to hold our leaders to account. Our communities and our wildlife simply cannot withstand the impacts of unprecedented bushfires fuelled by the climate crisis, year after year, if our government doesn’t act.
