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

From Little things Trailer

Rummin Productions are delighted to bring a collection of their independent films to Wynyard this December!

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

Australian Geographic's 2018 'Spirit of Adventure' recipient, climber and author Paul Pritchard, will be joining the filmmakers for a Q&A and book signing after the screening in the historic Wynyard Theatre.

Also in the line-up is the breathtaking documentary about the scientific monitoring of our Island's endemic species of Shy Albatross. The film titled namanu rruni | Albatross Island, was recently judged best conservation film at the World Conservation film festival in New York!

  • 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.

  • 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.
