Victoria, Australia
Listed by View details

A search for a lost bird sends a girl down the main drain.

An experimental short film by James Ruse set around The Moonee Ponds Creek.

Once known by local GUNUNG clan ( “creek dwelling people” ) as the MOONEE MOONEE chain of ponds, The Moonee Ponds Creek is a heavily engineered concrete stormwater drain traversing Melbourne’s North-West. Described by The Age as “arguably the most abused tributary of the Yarra River, and part of the true underside of Melbourne”.

MAIN DRAIN explores our troubled relationship with this urban / natural environment that once was an untouched sanctuary for local wildlife, flora and fauna.
