Big Stories, Small Towns
An interactive documentary project connecting local stories and communities in South Australia.
Big Stories features collaborations between small town communities and filmmakers in residence. The project is shaped through extensive local consultation and participation to create stories made by both filmmakers and community members – full of love, humour, family and belonging.
Far from tales of rural dysfunction and decay, Big Stories focuses on those caring for and creating their own community. From the Longriders in Murray Bridge, the Ngarrindjeri community of Raukkan on the shores of Lake Alexandrina, the Men’s Shed in Port Augusta to the Tampuon people of Ban Lung on the edge of the jungle in Northern Cambodia, Big Stories aims to connect local stories to build a diverse and inspiring global portrait of country life.
