SERENGETI RULES
2018 | 84 min | UNITED KINGDOM
Directed by Nicolas Brown
Australian Premiere

Exploring some of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth, five pioneering scientists make a surprising discovery that flips our understanding of nature on its head, and offers new hope for restoring balance in our world.

Academy Award-winning Passion Pictures and HHMI Tangled Bank Studios present one of the most important but untold science stories of our time—a tale with profound implications for the fate of life on our planet.

Beginning in the 1960s, a small band of young scientists headed out into the wilderness, driven by an insatiable curiosity about how nature works.

Immersed in some of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth—from the majestic Serengeti to the Amazon jungle; from the Arctic Ocean to Pacific tide pools—they discovered a single set of rules that govern all life.

Now in the twilight of their eminent careers, these five unsung heroes of modern ecology share the stories of their adventures, reveal how their pioneering work flipped our view of nature on its head, and give us a chance to reimagine the world as it could and should be.

HOME FRONT
Facing Australia’s Climate Emergency

2019 | 16.20 min | AUSTRALIA
Directed by Luke Taylor
World Premiere

A powerful and eye-opening analysis that presents some of Australia’s leading security, defence and political experts who all warn us that climate change is ‘a catalyst for conflict’ and a ‘threat multiplier’ as it fuels instability in the world’s most vulnerable regions.

The global scientific community has reached broad consensus on climate change  – but its social consequences, and how we will deal with them, highlight our failure of imagination.

HOME FRONT explores how climate change is inexorably linked to our national and regional security, and how the relationship between climate disruption and conflict will be the predominant force shaping the social, political, and economic world of the 21st century.
