Melbourne Down Under showcases the city's best kept secret - Port Phillip Bay, a marine environment that rivals tropical reefs in colour and diversity.

Port Phillip Bay is home to over 1300 plants and animals including towering kelp forests, fish that fish for other fish, ocean giants and dragons that sparkle like jewels. Over 82% of the marine life found here on the southern shores is found nowhere else in the world. It’s a surprising secret that few know…until now.

This film is a great a conversation starter to raise awareness of Port Phillip Bay, how to care for it and how our actions on land can have an impact on these marine environments.

Startling, beautiful, and provocative, Revolution is an epic adventure that inspires our youth to start a revolution and change the world forever.

Revolution is an empowering firsthand look into the most important issues facing humanity, the story of how we got here, the ecosystems we depend on for survival, and the dawn of the largest movement that’s ever existed that’s rising to the challenge of saving our world.  

What quickly becomes apparent is that the global conservation movement depends on the passion of young people, and that information changes everything.
