What would Australia look like in 2030 if we simply listened to the needs of its people?
“I think we are losing a lot of people to nihilism, or they are just tuning out and watching blockbusters and not actually engaging any more…
Let’s focus on all the exciting things we could do.”

Regenerating Australia is a 17-minute short film based on a four-month interview process with a diverse group of Australians who shared their hopes and dreams for the country’s future.
Set on New Year’s Eve of December 2029, a news anchor is ending the nightly bulletin with a look back at the decade ‘that could be’; a decade that saw Australia transition to a fairer, cleaner, more community-focused economy.
The film is a construction of news reports and press conferences featuring high profile journalists, politicians, business leaders and citizens such as Kerry O’Brien, Sandra Sully, Gorgi Coghlan, Patrick Abboud, Larissa Behrendt and David Pocock.
