'Regenerating Australia' is a 17 minute short film with a large story - another master work by Damon Gameau and his creative team who were also responsible for the award winning film '2040'. It is based on a 4 month interview process with a diverse group of Australians who shared their hopes and dreams for the country’s future. It's a positive ray of sunshine in these heavy, heavy times - a snapshot of what life could be, will be, if we all do the work required.
Damon has been a inspirational presence in so many of our lives for a couple of decades now - from his prominent acting career, to his transformation into an award-winning film-maker. There’s his timeless Tropfest winner Animal Beatbox, through to his legendary documentary features That Sugar Film and 2040. In this vital decade, where big bold changes have to made, Regenerating Australia gives us a vision to aim for - it will help us manifest a better future.
Discussion after the premiere of the film in Sydney.
Regenerate Australia is piloting replicable and scalable pathways for communities to lead Australia’s transition to a regenerative future.
In partnership with World Wildlife Fund, Regen Studios will work with major partners, donors and investors and government agencies to develop a blended 'regeneration fund' for impactful, innovative, scalable and exciting solutions that will help achieve this vision.
The film is meant to be a conversation starter about vision setting at a community, grass roots level. Regen Studios will document different project implementations and amplify the outcomes.
It is no longer viable to simply mitigate the affects and causes of climate change and try to adapt to them - we actively need to regenerate the natural environment to save the future.
