The Giants Film Screening, Melbourne

Event description

Bush Heritage Australia invites you to join us at the movies to watch the incredible and long overdue biopic of environmentalist Bob Brown - 'The Giants'. As the founder of Bush Heritage, Bob has a very special place in our hearts and history and we are excited to share this fantastic film experience with you, our wonderful Melbourne supporters.

The Giants explores the intertwined fates of trees and humans in this poetic portrait of environmentalist Bob Brown and the Forest. From a seedling to forest elder: the film is a masterclass that draws on Bob's 50 years of inspiring activism, from the Franklin campaign for Tasmania's last wild river, to today's battle for the Tarkine rain forest. Told in Bob's own words, his story is interwoven with the extraordinary life cycle of Australia's giant trees, bought to the screen with stunning cinematography and immersive animated forest landscapes.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A panel with special guests Laurence Billiet, The Giants writer, producer and director, along with Karen Alexander OAM, former president and life member of Bush Heritage, who worked closely with Bob during the campaign to stop the Franklin Dam and the formative years of Bush Heritage.
