2019 Official Selection

takayna / Tarkine in northwestern Tasmania is home to one of the last undisturbed tracts of Gondwanan rainforest in the world, and one of the highest concentrations of Aboriginal archaeology in the hemisphere. Yet this place, which remains largely as it was when dinosaurs roamed the planet, is currently at the mercy of destructive extraction industries, including logging and mining. Weaving together the conflicting narratives of activists, locals, and Aboriginal communities through the experiences of a trail running doctor and a relentless environmentalist, takayna unpacks the complexities of modern conservation and challenges us to consider the importance of our last truly wild places.
