About the film

Regenerating Australia is a short film by the team behind the high-impact feature documentaries 2040 and That Sugar Film. It is based on a four month interview process with a diverse group of Australians who shared their hopes and dreams for the country’s future.

Featuring Kerry O’Brien, Sandra Sully, Gorgi Coghlan, Tim Flannery, Larissa Behrendt, David Pocock and other well-known voices, the film is set on New Year’s Eve 2029 and takes the form of a news bulletin looking back at the decade ‘that could be’. A decade that saw Australia transition to a fairer, cleaner, more regenerative economy that values Australia’s greatest assets - First Nations' wisdom, our unique natural environment and our sense of community.

Regeneration is about bringing vitality and renewed growth to our communities and to our ecosystems.

Schools and Educators

We’ve partnered with Cool Australia to develop free curriculum resources for upper primary and secondary years. The first release of lessons will be available at the end of March 2022.
