Green Is The New Black
Feature Documentary (Australia) - Screening 29th October - Self-Rated - M content ratingNominated for: Best Feature Doc, Best Film Editing, Best Original Score, Best Sound
Green Is The New Black is a story of passion and purpose behind an ambitious environmental feat of one of Australia’s leading heavy music acts, In Hearts Wake. Their fiercely loyal following has been forged from their relentless world–touring ethic, passionate ecological advocacy and hard-hitting, melodic-driven music. The band have received four top-5 records, an ARIA nomination for Best Hard Rock album, 110 million digital streams and over 100,000 records sold worldwide. But the more they recorded and toured the planet, the clearer it became: they were unwittingly threatening the very thing they sought to protect. The band vowed to record, release and perform their next album, (Kaliyuga), in a radically new and sustainable way. Green is the New Black is a carbon off-set documentary that captures the twists and turns of the band’s urgent mission to stop at nothing as they face backlash, bushfires and an unprecedented global pandemic.
Through conversation with creatives, experts and professionals such as Damon Gameau (2040, That Sugar Film), Tamara Smith (Greens Member for Parliament), AY Young (United Nations Young Leader), Jess Ducrou (Splendour In The Grass Festival founder), Heidi Lennfer (FEAT Artists), and Luke Logemann (UNFD Records), join In Hearts Wake as they uncover unsettling truths, face human adversity and discover inspiring solutions for a new earth-aligned way forward.
