A River as a Character

Tess Brady candidly reflects on ageing – on death, life and the future – now that she is over 70. Her story is one shared by many older women and is poignant for younger women thinking about their own ageing processes.
A river exists in both geological time and an ever changing present. Fragments of the Murray-Darling river system form the central characters in this film, and the rivers invite you to see the world from their perspective.

Reflections on the Murray Darling (2019)

Expect Delays (2018)
Expect Delays experiments with John Grierson’s idea of ‘co-operative characters’: no one character is central to the story. In Expect Delays humans and machines work together to destroy, rest, and then create our world.
