About Where the Water Starts

“From time immemorial, the Snowy Mountains in south-east Australia have acted as a huge sponge releasing water through summer into several great rivers. Now it’s being trampled, dried out and burnt up. Richard Swain decides to speak out about the destruction of this fragile alpine environment: ‘It's at a tipping point.' Where The Water Starts brings together respected Aboriginal community leaders and others who share Richard's quest to protect the high country.”

Q&A panel discussion afterwards with Bruce Pascoe, Richard Swain, Greg Smart, Ash Markstone, Crystal Arnold, Dean Kelly and filmmaker Mandy King.
