Earthdream > documentary by Matt Bonner

| | |
Europe 1988: Mutoid Waste founder Robin Mutoid conceives a journey across the Australian desert, which would fuse a 'madder than Max' blend of theater, protest, radical lifestyle and performance. Twelve years later Robin heads to Port Augusta in Australia's far south to see who will join the vision. Those who come are a mixture of activists, musicians, travellers and artists willing to take part in the 20,000km journey and experiment with 'lateral human governance'. Along the way the spontaneous community of creative nomads hold parties and free festivals, perform music workshops for kids in the outback and also experience violence at the hands of the South Australian Police Force during a protest for indigenous rights at the Beverly Uranium Mine.

Visionary Activators

| | |


These video interviews with 'Visionary Activators' Shane Huebner and Margaret Cross were first screened on Channel 31's Vision program. Shane and Margaret come from ordinary backgrounds and have been drawn to a number of healing modalities in their travels across North and South America, relearning the wisdom tradtions of those cultures. Now they practise and teach body and spirit work and Wisdom Teachings in their shamanistic ceremonies and are also raising consciousness about paradigm change and re-connection to the planet. As part of this they also teach Common Law classes to empower individuals and activists as part of a Gaian Spiritual Warrior programme that marries activism and entheogenic awareness.

Carteret Islands by Pip Starr

|



The people of the Carteret Islands are about to make history. They will not be the first people to lose their homes because of global warming. Rising seas, expanding deserts and changing weather have already displaced many, possibly millions of people. But the people of the Carterets are unique, as they will be the first to see their atoll, 6 small islands 100 km form Bougainville, completely submerged. They will begin to desert their islands in early 2007.
