New to VOD this past weekend:
Byron Bay 2015
DOC NYC, Balinale
A profile of an unlikely activist.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
When Aussie everyman Dayne Pratzky left Sydney to build a home in rural Tara, he never expected he’d find himself in a battle over one of today’s most contentious issues: fracking. After the gas companies arrive to exploit the coal seam gas trapped beneath his land, Dayne learns he has no legal recourse to stop their activity. Galvanized to take a stand, the accidental activist unites an unlikely alliance of farmers and radicals to save their community, unexpectedly becoming part of a global network in the process.
