Guarding the Galilee Documentary

Tarkine In Motion
Director: Dan Broun

Over 70 artists in 72 hours bring to you the essence of one wild landscape which is the Tarkine. It is alive and in motion.

In April 2015, over 70 photographers, filmmakers, musicians and artists journeyed into the Tarkine– a part of north west Tasmania of great cultural and environmental significance – to document and interpret its wild, scenic beauty as never before. From that weekend comes this stunning 55-minute documentary portrait of this threatened wilderness and the creative minds working to save it. Curated by Tasmanian wilderness photographer and film maker, Dan Broun and the Bob Brown Foundation, Tarkine In Motion is a multi-platform project culminating in film, concerts and exhibitions of art created in the heart of the Tarkine, one of the last great wilderness areas on the planet.
