Western Australia’s southwest forests are part of one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet and are recognised for their ability to capture and store carbon. They are vital to slowing run-away climate change yet instead of preserving them they are being cut down at an alarming rate for charcoal, firewood and woodchips. Cry of the Forests takes viewers to the heart of the forests to see first-hand the beauty of these towering ecosystems and to witness the community battle to save them.
We hope to have a zoom link with filmmaker Jane Hammond for a QnA.
This special mini winter documentary film festival is a collaboration with the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival supported by the Warrnambool City Council.
