Project for Rock Island Bend Productions SPV PTY LTD
FRANKLIN is a visually stunning feature-length documentary about Australia’s most significant environmental campaign: the eight-year battle to save Tasmania’s World-Heritage listed Franklin River from being dammed by a hydroelectric project in the early 1980s.
The story is told through the eyes of Oliver Cassidy, a transgender environmentalist and 8th generation Tasmanian, whose late father Mike was a key activist in the campaign. Oliver embarks on an ambitious 12-day solo rafting adventure down the river to retrace Mike’s expedition to the dam site blockade where he, along with 1271 other people, were arrested for demonstrating. Directed by Kasimir Burgess and Produced by Chris Kamen.
The Post Lounge completed colour grading, online and mastering and delivery as well as provided the editorial systems and facilities.
