Tarkine in Motion - special encore screening

In April 2015, over 70 photographers, filmmakers, musicians and artists journeyed into the Tarkine 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.



Following its sellout premiere at the Environment Film Festival in Hobart in September 2015, we have arranged a special encore screening for those who missed it and those who want to see it again.

The next screening of Tarkine in Motion is at Hobart's State Cinema, Wednesday 9 Dec at 6 pm.  Tickets available now from the State Cinema.

ABC Open: Tarkine Dreaming

ABC Open has a short but beautiful video on Pingala Walsh's creative mind in the Tarkine forests.


"For Pingala Walsh, weaving together elements that she has photographed and brought together to make a digital artwork means getting intimately acquainted with the detail of the flora and fauna of a place.

This film follows Pingala's journey to interpret Tasmania's Tarkine - a place overflowing with beauty and incredible detail, as plants such as the Huon pine, myrtle and sassafras all nestle together with countless mosses, lichens and fungi."

Watch the Tarkine Dreaming video on ABC Open here.

"Bob Brown first entered the Tarkine in 1972 to search for the Tasmanian Tiger. While he didn't find the thylacine, he did find an ancient and magnificent landscape that inspired four and a half decades of campaigning to protect this amazing place.

Even gaolled for standing in defense of the Tarkine, Bob's passion has inspired thousands to visit this place and fall in love with it's rainforests and coastal wilderness."
