Takayna / Lessons from Jeju
Takayna / Tarkine in northwestern Tasmania is home to one of the last tracts of old-growth rainforest in the world, yet it’s currently at the mercy of destructive extraction industries, including logging and mining. This documentary unpacks the complexities of modern conservation and challenges us to consider the importance of our last wild places.
In Lessons from Jeju, professional freediver Kimi Werner is seven months pregnant and takes a trip to the island of Jeju in South Korea to meet her heroes, the haenyeo. This group of freediving and fishing women is often regarded as Korea’s first working mothers; their culture dates back centuries.
