#wafsac - Watch a Film, Save a Culture

After sold-out shows in Melbourne (Federation Square), Torquay and Sydney, Henry and the Indigenous Education Foundation (IEF) would like to welcome you to a screening of feature documentary film, As Worlds Divide, at the Merewether Surf Life Saving Club, Newcastle.

In 2008, Australian surfer Rob Henry packed up his life in Melbourne and flew to the Mentawai Islands, Indonesia, in the hope of pursuing a more sustainable and fulfilling way of life. What he found instead were a people facing a threat far more pressing than his own.

9 years on Henry is returning to share the Mentawai people's story. As the remaining tribes-people battle for their culture and land there is still hope amongst a small group of tribal educators who are making a stand.

Tickets: $20 + BF (includes photo exhibition and Q&A with the film's Director, Henry)

Pizza & drinks available on the night.

All proceeds from the event will go directly to the community’s Cultural & Environmental Education Program (CEEP) via IEF.

By attending and learning about Mentawai's fascinating culture you'll actively be helping to save it - #WAFSAC

Presented by Patagonia Aus and Garage Entertainment.
