TFF: Our Power
Followed by panel discussion
An empowering documentary about the Latrobe Valley community as they bear the brunt of the privatisation of Victoria’s electricity in the 1990s and the devastating Hazelwood Mine Fire of 2014.
The Latrobe Valley is home to three brown coal mines and four power stations which have provided Victoria with over 80 per cent of its power, every day, for over 90 years. This raw and unfiltered documentary traces the footsteps of the Latrobe Valley’s history, starting from the coal community’s birth in the 1920s to the establishment of the State Electricity Commission Victoria (SECV), while focussing on the effects of the privatisation in the 1990s, which severely demoralised the community’s pride in electricity production.
Since 2014, the Latrobe Valley community has been sparked into action and are taking control of their health, community and future. The film takes its audience through an emotional and intense roller-coaster as it exposes the fundamental issues facing the community today.
An advanced preview of Our Power Screened in 2017. This will be the Victorian Premiere of the final feature.
