Event description

Description

OUR POWER is thrilled to announce a free and public screening for the Newcastle and surrounding communities.

The film screens for 55 minutes and following the film a live Q&A will be held. Director and Producer of the film, Peter and Anissha, will host the Q&A panel which will be made up of Latrobe Valley community members who have travelled all the way up from Victoria.

During the Q&A panel, we’ll be able to continue the conversation on broader community issues that are addressed in the film.





ABOUT THE FILM:

'OUR POWER' aims to shine the light on the Latrobe Valley (Victoria, Australia) community and their 90+ year history of providing power to Victoria and beyond. The film explores the transition of the power industry as it was privatised in the late 1990s and the devastating Hazelwood mine fire of 2014. At a time where coal is seemingly the only option for the Latrobe Valley, the community is forced to unite and fight for a sustainable future.
