29th September, 2012
One of the biggest environmental battles Australia has ever seen is unfolding. The problem is, few are aware of it. Greenpeace's beautifully crafted new short animation 'Welcome to Coal World' is the animation every Australian must watch. This creative masterpiece manages the perfect balance of entertainment and education.
It could also mean the world of difference for our national treasure, the Great Barrier Reef, which is under threat from an unprecedented expansion of coal mining and exports.
This newly-released animation is produced by award-winning film maker, Daniel Bird. Daniel won Best Animated Short at Slamdance in 2010 and a prestigious Golden Drum award in 2011. Based in the Czech Republic, he has carved up the scene in Europe and now lends his talents Downunder.
