There’s no more pressing agenda in global politics right now than climate change and the environment. Yet despite the endless talk about whether or not climate change is real, one of the world’s most breathtaking natural wonders and destination hub for millions of tourists each year, the Great Barrier Reef – is being brought to its knees.
In his multi-award winning documentary – Murder on the Reef – ex-Chernobyl scientist Dr Allen Dobrovolsky takes us on a compelling journey into the heart of the issue, as he meets with the everyday people and communities who rely on the reef.
Speaking with scientists, indigenous leaders, local politicians, tourism operators and mining contractors, Allen discovers a lack of unity between these groups as the underlying cause preventing effective action being taken to restore the reef.
This is a film about nature – human nature – and its flawed tendency to greed over good, conflict over unification, complacency over action. It reveals how brawling on land has never worked and above all, it raises urgent questions about how we turn the tide.
“Murder on the Reef offers an incredible insight into Australia’s conflict of interest between protecting the reef and income from mining royalties.” Daniel, Brisbane
