With Carbon in the news every day, you might think you know everything about her. But you’d be wrong. This spectacular and surprisingly unorthodox documentary reveals the paradoxical story of the element that builds all life, and yet may end it all. Narrated in first person by Sarah Snook (Succession), Carbon tells of her birth in the violent core of an exploding star and of turbulent sagas through the fabric of our evolving Earth. Accompanied by celebrated scientists, unique animations and a stunning orchestral score, Carbon reminds us of our humble participation in the most extraordinary story in the universe.
We are seeking support to enable us to deliver an education, impact and outreach campaign for documentary film Carbon, screening nationally in 2022 (in cinemas and broadcast on ABC Television).
We aim to build partnerships with organisations such as charities, not-for-profits, education, and research institutions working in the climate, environment, STEM, and education spaces.
We plan to share our media materials with confirmed partners to be used as a resource to enhance or bolster their advocacy and messaging around climate change, science, environmentalism, and natural environments. These partners would support the project through expertise, access to networks to expand audience reach, special partner and education screenings, and by using the film and its resources in their work and education delivery.
Carbon has clear curriculum relevance that will attract teachers from secondary schools. In collaboration with Australian Teachers of Media (ATOM) we seek to develop online learning assets for both teachers and students, to enhance the impact of the film’s messaging on climate change, environmentalism, natural history, and sciences.
