Sydney Harbour: Above and Below

Australia • 2019 • 5MINS 

In partnership with Plastic Oceans International, TOMRA presents this short film about Australia’s iconic Sydney Harbour, which is a beautiful location, but beneath the surface, it’s a different story! 70% of all debris sinks to the ocean floor and 2/3 of pollution into Sydney Harbour comes from stormwater run-off. This short film documents the work of Project AWARE, Manly Dive Centre, Sidney Institute of Marine Science, and Ocean Protect, and offers some advice for those looking to do their part.

Eating Up Easter

Chile/USA | 2018 | 76 mins

Native Rapanui (Easter Island) filmmaker Sergio Mata’u Rapu narrates to his son the modern dilemma of their people who risk losing everything to the globalizing effects of tourism.

The film follows four islanders, descendants of the ancient Moia statue builders of Easter Island, who are working to tackle the consequences of their rapidly developing home. Mama Piru leads recycling efforts to reduce trash, Mahani and Enrique use music to reunite their divided community, and Sergio tries to understand the motivations of his father who embraces the advantages of building new businesses. These stories intertwine to reveal the complexities of development and the contradictions within us all as we are faced with hard choices about our planet’s future.
