From Little Things Short films, Big Stories from lutruwita / Tasmania

From Little things Trailer

Come along and enjoy a wonderful night of award-winning Tasmanian films by Rummin Productions featuring stories about extraordinary individuals achieving great things on the Island.

Adventurer and author Paul Pritchard – who features in two of the award-winning films, will be joining the filmmakers and fellow expeditioner Walter Van Praag for a Q&A and book signing after the screening at the Civic Centre.

Also in the line-up is the newly released documentary namanu rruni | Albatross Island, recently judged best film and best story in this year's inaugural Stories in September festival.

namanu rruni | Albatross Island (14:19) namanu rruni | Albatross Island trailer

  • Albatross Island is a magical place. 18 hectares of conglomerate rock off the northwestern tip of Tasmania is home to 5200 breeding pairs of Shy Albatross. Marine biologist Dr Rachael Aldermen, who has been visiting the island for a decade, oversees a long-term monitoring program. Filmed over 3 years, namanu rruni | Albatross Island provides the very rare opportunity to see this unique Island and the compelling scientific work being undertaken there.

Doing it Scared (11:44) Doing it Scared trailer

  • In 1998 Paul Pritchard was abseiling in to climb the Totem Pole in Tasmania when he dislodged a rock with his rope that hit him on the head, leaving him with a severe head injury that he was lucky to survive. The aftermath of the accident left him with hemiplegia, which means he has little feeling or movement in the right side of this body. Despite this disability, Paul’s continued to live a life filled with adventure. Eighteen years later Paul returns to the Totem Pole to find out if he has recovered enough to finish the climb.

Returning patrula / fire (11:15) Returning patrula / fire trailer

  • Traditional Aboriginal patch burning. The first time Aboriginal people have been back on this country in the Northern Midlands of Tasmania to undertake the practice of burning since the early period of invasion. This is the result of true leadership from both the landowner and members of the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community.

Lowest to Highest (27:37) Lowest to Highest trailer

  • An adventurous road trip about five friends with disabilities who undertake a human-powered 2,150km ride from Lake Eyre to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko. Through the boundless landscape of Australia, five friends attempt to be the first to cycle from the continent’s lowest point, Kati Thanda - Lake Eyre, a vast salt lake in the desert at 15 metres below sea level, to the highest point, the snow-capped summit of Mount Kosciuszko. The 2150km journey would be hard enough for anyone but Duncan is blind, Walter can’t breathe, Daniel can’t walk, Conrad can’t bend, and half of Paul’s body doesn’t work.
