The Passing of Pip Starr

'I believe documentary should be beautiful and entertaining as well as emotionally and intellectually stimulating. I have always been inspired by the work of activists and others who have a long-term vision for the world that is about peace and real sustainability.’
   * PipStarr, 2007

Through the Wire
In 2003 dozens of asylum seekers escaped from the notorious Woomera Detention Centre during a protest at the remote desert location. Pip Starr was at the forefront of all the action.

The First Wave
In 2008 the people of the Carteret Islands have begun relocating to mainland Bougainville as their Atoll becomes uninhabitable. They are among an emerging class of global citizens – environmental refugees.
