                   NEW RELEASE
                The Promised Land
Following the 1971 Aquarius festival in Nimbin NSW many people decided not to return to the city and that way of life.  Many took the plunge and decided to stay in the vicinity.  Locals were leaving in droves.  They were eagerly replaced by tribes of hippies keen to practise a countercultural lifestyle. So began an invasion that was to change to face of country Australia as feral hippies took to the streets confident, cashed up and semi naked.  It wouldn’t be long before friction turned to fire.

We did it.  Or rather you did it.  From people fo goodwill we've raised the money to restore this unique record of the battle for justice for first nations people in Australia. NINGLA - A'NA is a legendary documentary film shot inside the embassy and up close to all the major players. No other film record gets as close to the struggle as this.  This 72 minute film is an extraordinary insight to the ongoing battle for justice and is in danger of being lost forever as it's condition deteriorates.  With the cultural authorities declining to assist the restoration of the film we went out to people of good will and raised the money to make a beautiful high definition scan and clean scratches and glue from the images. It should be ready in about six weeks


Bellingen dvd Cover art low res

The town of Bellingen is half way between Sydney and Brisbane.  It is situated in valleys so beautiful it could be the garden of Eden.  In the 1970s it’s dairy industry was dying and the timber cutting was in decline.  Locals were leaving in droves.  They were eagerly replaced by cashed up hippies keen to practise a countercultural lifestyle of free love, dope and expanded consciousness.

Using contemporary interviews with the hippies and townspeople of the 70s and blending never before seen archival movie footage, filmmakers Geddes and Gailey have created a warm, funny and insightful odyssey about unstoppable change. Change that has seen Aborigines dispossessed by farmers, farmers by hippies and now hippies by tree changers. And so it goes…..
