A story about farmers, the soils they work and a piece of powerful knowledge that nearly slipped through their fingers. Grassroots follows Guy Webb and his friends, unlikely heroes on a quest to bring a genuine climate change solution to the world.


 


Founded in 2000, SCINEMA is the largest science film festival in the southern hemisphere celebrating the power of moving image to explain the wonders of science.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature.

Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
