    Wildness - Silver Screen

    October Silver Screen is Wildness: Olegas Truchanas and Peter Dombrovskis were perhaps Australia's greatest wilderness photographers. Their work became synonymous with campaigns to protect Tasmania's natural heritage. They shared many things, including a bond that was more like that of father and son. Both came from Baltic Europe and migrated to Tasmania, where their passion for nature became a crusade to save an environment under threat. Both died in the wilderness, doing what they loved, and left a legacy in extraordinary images. Their philosophy was simple and remarkably effective - if people could see the beauty of Australia's wild places then they might be moved to save them.

    Created in 2003

    Directed by Scott Millwood

    Run Time: 55 mins

    Manganinnie - Silver Screen

    Our final Silver Screen will feature Manganinnie;  Joanna (Anna Ralph), a young white girl, is lost in 1830s Tasmania, where she is found by Manganinnie (Mawuyul Yanthalawuy), an aboriginal tribeswoman who was also recently separated from her loved ones. Together, despite a language barrier and vast cultural differences, they move across the country through mountains and wilderness. During their trek, they bond as Manganinnie searches for her lost tribe and Joanna discovers the wonders of her land amid ongoing European colonization.
