In this triumphant film, director and actress Rachel Ward voyages from her own wilful ignorance about the ecological impacts of conventional agriculture, to championing a movement to restore the health of our farmland, food and climate and in doing so the wellbeing of the farming communities that sustain the nation, and ourselves. Rachel's Farm is for anyone who cares about how their food is produced, how degraded our soils have become, and the changing role of women on farms.
The Oyster Gardener
Can a functionally extinct reef system be brought back to life? “The Oyster Gardener” is a short (10 min) documentary that follows the story of Jolie, a grade-12 student and aspiring marine biologist, as she joins forces with her community to bring back the lost oyster reefs of the Noosa river.
In this short (7 min) documentary, film-maker Marlikka Perdrisat forms a dreamlike expression of her intergenerational connection to Country; a connection available to everyone who loves and cares for a place.

This film is about knowing Country, creating memories with Country, and maintaining Country for the next generation.
