1973, 58 Minutes. Exempt from classification.
One of Australia's earliest environmental activists.
This is the story of Francis Sutton and his passion to save Australian coastlines from ocean outfall sewage pollution. In his ceaseless efforts to promote and instigate an inland storage and irrigation system on the New South Wales central coast as an alternative to seaboard disposal of sewage, Sutton meets authority head on, in spite of constant rebuffs. This film takes a look at individual commitment to environmental action at a time when much less emphasis was placed on human impact on and conservation of the natural environment.
A co-production of Film Australia and the National Film Board of Canada.
