The Screen Guide

DROUGHT is a highly evocative film which contexts the dry seasons in the rhythm of the Australian climate. The cycle of drought, fire and flood is part of the natural order rather than a series of unpredictable catastrophies. The film explores the Australian Aboriginal attitude to drought, examines the theories of tip causes including sunspots, volcanic eruptions and eccentricities in our planets orbit. The film chronicles the impact of drought on the flora and fauna, and the people who have tried to carve a livelihood out of the most unforgiving continent of all.
