Why we need your support?
When it comes to making a large film, a first impulse is to look for investment from the mainstream outlets; Netflix, Free to Air Networks, On-Domand and film distributors. The problem facing these avenues is that they all have contractual agreements where you sell the rights of the film. If you sold the rights to air on Netflix for instance, you would not be able to show the film anywhere else other than Netflix.
What you get in return?
This film is about inspiring and empowering everyone to make meaningful changes where they live, by sharing real life stories of people who successfully made change in a variety walks of life. We believe it's everyday people who will make the biggest change, not governements and companies. By providing you with valuable concepts and tools to live sustainabily, will allow all of us the ability to make the difference, right now.

What is the film about?
What if the way to stop the destruction of the world isn’t so much about what we do, but more importantly, its how we think?
Why are we making this film?
A few years ago we came up with the idea to make a film about Permauclture, because of so many of the problems we were facing with climate change left us feeling helpless. So many of the documentaries we watched talked about the problems, but left us without any real solutions for the future.
We had a look around at what else was out there and were suprised to find that, although there were films about Permaculture, there were no films that indentified this idea of working with nature - so we decided to create a film that truelly captures the essense of Permaculture and reconnect people to nature.
What is Permaculture?
Permaculture can be seen as the most sustainable design system in the world.
Permaculture is a creative design process that mimics the patterns and relationships found in nature and applies these concepts to all aspects of human habitation, from agriculture to ecological building, technology, health, education and economics.
By mimicking the patterns in nature, we can create completely sustainable systems that not only benefits the environment, but benefits ‘us’ as people. Resources are respected and used in the most efficient and fair way that works within the laws of nature.
This way of thinking about the world isn’t new. Indigenous people connected to the land, in this way, but what Permaculture does is it takes those core values and ethics of; Care of Earth, Care of People and Fair Share and brings them into the ideals of the modern world. As these ideas developed, thinking tools have been created, drawn from past cultures that lived sustainably and re-implemented through principles that allow wholisitic design that is universal to any system anywhere around the world to become sustainable. It’s an integrated way of thinking about nature that allows us to live completely sustainably.
As an example when we look at a forest; a forest doesn’t require any external resources such as fertilisers, herbicides and water to thrive and yet, in modern agriculture we require all of these resources to grow food. So, if we want to grow as efficiently and abundantly as possible, why don’t we grow our food like a forest – So it becomes self sufficient, produces food and requires very little in put to thrive?
"The techniques and strategies used vary widely depending on the location, climatic conditions and resources that are available, but the foundations to this wholistic approach remain constant. Permaculture helps you become more resilient in an era of change."
- David Holmgren
Our mission is to create a beautiful cinematic film that empowers and inspires people to live sustainably by reconnecting with nature.
It sounds big, but it is everyday people who will make a difference. This is why we plan to release this film free to stream online, so that its message is available to everyone.
If we can reach our goal of raising $100,000 AU, then this film will be available all around the world, completely free to view online.
All it takes is a change in our minds, to change the world.
