Director Statement

What Matters is a film about Dan Broun and Al Long, two talented wilderness photographers who are passionate about the wilderness that surrounds them.

Dan and Al are deep in the Tarkine rainforest exploring small rivers and landscapes documenting the extraordinary beauty of a wild Tasmanian landscape. They discuss what inspires them as individuals and their role in the Bob Brown Foundation artist initiative to help protect and save the Tarkine wilderness.

The film is a combination of personal profiles, the wilderness and 'Tarkine In Motion' the artist movement designed to save the beautiful Tarkine area.
