Combining visually stunning sport photography and behind the scenes footage from the frontlines, the The Radicals fulfills the action-sport athlete’s quest for extreme landscapes and adventure while uncovering critical social issues and inspirational stories of resistance.

This visually stunning documentary follows a group of professional snowboarders and surfers who drift from their respective sport into the world of activism.

Together they journey across the West Coast of British Columbia, weaving a story of learning, inspiration and resistance.

From the Tahltan fight for the Iskut Headwaters, BC Hydro’s corruption in Xwísten, and art as resilience on Haida Gwaii, to a coastal uprising against fish farms off the coast of Vancouver Island, each community teaches the athletes to understand what it means to be a true radical.

Screening with Short Film – Home Front

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.

Followed by panel discussion. See Eventbrite page for speaker information.
