With the backing of the WA Museum, Gondwana Link has produced:
- A series of eight short films (2 min each) featuring some of work being tackled by people and groups across the Gondwana Link.
- A short (3:12 min) portrayal of the long term commitment, sense of place, and local ingenuity behind a thirty year effort to restore the health of Oyster Harbour, near Albany, through world-first seagrass restoration and extensive landcare and conservation work in the catchment.
- A gritty almost silent film (4:40 min) about agricultural land clearing in south-western Australia, the loss of habitat and other impacts, and the hope that comes from restoring country.
The 10 films are available for viewing on HERE.
We are honoured and excited that all these films are on display in the new WA Museum Boola Bardip. If you are visiting the museum, our series of eight short films are showcased in a Gondwana Link touchscreen display in the Wild Life Gallery (beside the Great Western Woodlands display – to the right of the gallery’s entrance).
Our ‘Clearing the Land’ film is playing next to the large replica of a clearing ball and chain in the museum’s Changes Gallery, and our film ‘Restoring Oyster Harbour Together’ is screening just a few metres away in the ‘Farming for the Future’ display. How good is that coverage!
A HUGE thank you to all the films’ contributors, the filming, production and editing team, and the WA Museum.
We hope you enjoy watching these new bite-sized films and we’d love to hear your comments. Not that we’re bragging (much) but here’s some we’ve had so far:
“. . . they’re wonderful. Just the right bite-size to be watched by most people, and a diversity of topics. Brilliant.”
“I just binged on the entire collection on Gondwana Link Vimeo channel. It was a very fine collection.”
“… the Boola Bardip videos have exceeded all the expectations I had for them . . . You have captured both the individual person’s story as well as the bigger message they would want to convey.”
Please let us know if you would like to access a high resolution copy of any of these films for screening by contacting us.
