Franklin film now showing at the Belgrave

Thursday, 8 Sep
1:50 pm

A new documentary about the Franklin River which was saved from the Tasmanian Hydro damming of the river, in 1983 has just been released.
Ten years in the making, partly crowd-funded, and nominated for Best Australian Documentary in the AACTA Awards.

‘Franklin’ is screening daily at the Belgrave from tomorrow, Thursday.

Eighth-generation Tasmanian and environmentalist Oliver Cassidy embarks on a life-changing solo rafting trip down the beautiful yet remote Franklin River. His goal is to retrace his late father’s 14-day expedition to attend the blockade that saved the World-Heritage listed national park from being destroyed by a huge hydroelectric dam project in the early 1980s.

Featuring never-before-seen archival footage and interviews with key players such as Bob Brown and Uncle Jim Everett, the eight-year-long ‘Franklin campaign’ is revealed as the most significant environmental protest in Australia’s history; an inspiring example of the power of non-violent direct action to bring about lasting change.

Physically challenged beyond his limits, Oliver’s journey is one of healing and deeper understanding as he searches for the right way to say ‘goodbye’ to his father.
