ACMI pays tribute to acclaimed Melbourne documentary maker Pip Starr, who passed away earlier this year.
A professionally trained nurse, Starr squeezed in another career documenting environmental activism, the plight of independent coffee producers and, most recently, the rising sea levels off the Carteret Islands.
A selection of his films feature in this program, including Fight for Country: The Story of the Jabiluka Blockade
(62 mins, Australia, 2001), Through the Wire
(10 mins, Australia, 2004) and The Okapa Connection
(15 mins, Australia, 2006).
Some of Starr's supporters including Gary Foley and Dave Sweeney (Australian Conservation Foundation) will introduce the screenings.
