Description

On the 4th July 2017 Jeedara the film is premiering in the Far North. Sea Shepherd Cairns is proud to be hosting this evening in conjunction with the Salt House Cairns.

Jeedara has been nominated for a Hollywood International Independent Documetary Award, and promises to be a feast for the eyes and ears with music by Australian artists, John Butler Trio, Xavier Rudd and Bunna Lawrie.

In 2010 BP was responsible for the world’s largest oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico. Over several months, the rig spewed nearly 5 million barrels of oil into the ocean, killing millions of animals and destroying the surrounding environment.

Less than a year later, the Australian Government signed papers allowing BP to come to Australia and drill in deeper and rougher seas in the Great Australian Bight.

In 2016 'Operation Jeedara' launched- a campaign that would see the 'Steve Irwin' sail into the heart of the Great Australian Bight to document the beauty of the region in order to showcase what we would all stand to lose if we let BP drill there.

This film is the story of the campaign, that showcases one of the last big marine wilderness areas on Earth, one of the world’s most significant southern right whale nurseries, Nature on a grand scale,

See the amazing trailer here - jeedarathefilm.org

The film will screen at 7pm but, doors will open at 5:30pm for some pre-screen socializing and the opportunity to speak to on shore crew who will be able to talk more about the amazing work that Sea Shepherd does.

Food and drink will be for sale from the Salt House bar and Sea Shepherd merchandise will be for sale.

Please be aware that seating is limited and bookings are required.

We look forward to you joining us on a journey as we tell the story of Operation Jeedara and celebrate one of the big environmental wins of 2016.

*100% of profits raised from this event will go directly to Sea Shepherd Australia to keep operations such as this going.
