'This heartfelt documentary revisits Black Saturday in a moving, respectful and ultimately uplifting way.' – The Sunday Age
'Closer than you'd ever want to get to an inferno ... so close that you'll forget you're not a local.' – Adrian Hyland, author of Kinglake-350
On 7 February 2009, Australia suffered its worst natural disaster in recorded history. A firestorm of cyclonic fury swept across Victoria and 173 lives were lost. Nowhere was the destruction more terrible than in the tiny hamlet of Strathewen.
Filmmaker Celeste Geer is a member of that community and almost before the flames had died down she knew she was going to document its recovery. Over the next two-and-a-half years, Celeste followed a handful of individuals as they struggled to rebuild their shattered lives and find solace in unexpected places.
Then the Wind Changed is a mélange of compelling home footage, delicate observation and thoughtful meditation. It is a story of heartbreak and love, redemption and resilience.
