Dir. Jordan Osmond, Antoinette Wilson | New Zealand/Australia | 2018 | 85 mins
Presented by Darebin City Council.
Sometimes it feels like the environmental, economic and social issues the world is currently facing are too big and too overwhelming to be dealt with by individuals. But each and every one of us has the power to make a difference, and Living the Change sets out to inspire us to do just that. Exploring solutions to the global crises we face today – solutions any one of us can be part of – this film presents inspiring stories of people pioneering change in their own lives and in their communities.
Directors Jordan Osmond and Antoinette Wilson share tales from their travels, along with interviews with experts able to explain how we came to be where we are today. From forest gardens and composting toilets, to community-supported agriculture and timebanking, this film presents a plethora of ingenious yet practical ways to rethink our approach to how we live, and how to be the change we want to see in the world.
Join filmmaker Jordan Osmond for an audience Q&A after the screening.
Darebin City Council Deputy Mayor Cr Lina Messina will introduce the film.
Living the Change will screen with Australian short film Rusty Swordfish (10) directed by Jarrod Boord.
