Description

What if running could save a rainforest?

takayna is the latest film produced by Patagonia, documenting the threat, devastation and importance of saving takayna / Tarkine.

Patagonia has joined forces with the Bob Brown Foundation, trailer runners and the Tasmanian Aboriginal community to raise awareness and gain global support in nominating takayna / Tarkine as a World Heritage area.

Told through the eyes of a rural doctor, who runs ultramarathon distances deep into the forest to scout logging operations, this documentary unpacks the complexities of modern conservation and challenges us to consider the importance of our last truly wild places.

Director: Alex Lowther

Length: 35 minutes

Doors Open: 6pm - Refreshments will be served.

Introduction by Rick Ridgeway, Patagonia VP of Public Engagement

Film: 7pm followed by a Q&A with Dr. Bob Brown and Rick Ridgeway
