Charlie's Country

Charlie's Country (M)

Blackfella Charlie is getting older, and he's out of sorts. The intervention is making life more difficult on his remote community, what with the proper policing of whitefella laws that don't generally make much sense, and Charlie's kin and ken seeming more interested in going along with things than doing anything about it. So Charlie takes off, to live the old way, but in so doing sets off a chain of events in his life that has him return to his community chastened, and somewhat the wiser. Watch the trailer here

The Man From Coxs River

The Man From Coxs River (PG)

Bookings are strongly recommended. Luke Carlon grew up taking tourists on horse trips along the Coxs River, a place his family has ridden since the 1820s. All that changed nearly 20 years ago when the river was declared a wilderness area, the business closed and Luke's father died. After a long history of difficult relations between the National Parks and the Carlons, National Parks Ranger Chris Banffy has a problem he thinks Luke might be able to solve. A wiley mob of brumbies inhabit the Burragorang Valley, a water catchment area sealed off for over 50 years. Classed as feral pests, Chris needs to remove the horses from Sydney's water supply without any of the outcry that has marred some previous control operations using shooters in helicopters. The only access to the trap-yards is either by helicopter or horseback. If Luke takes the job, he will have to find the horses, get them in the trap, and he'll have to break them in enough to lead them a bone crunching 5 km up to another set of yards with truck access. The film was recently awarded a prestigious Heritage award, the first ever awarded to a documentary. Watch the trailer here | Visit the official site
