The HighWater Film (48 minutes-drama) based on the establishment of an alternative education setting for “kids who don’t fit” was shown at the Santa Fe Film Festival (New Mexico) in April 2016. The film is now available for public screening.
Based on true events, HIGHWATER tells the story of how HighWater Theatre School was born. Six at-risk teenagers, two ex-prisoner trainee artists and three passionate, yet naïve community artists have the daunting task of establishing an alternative school in a conservative border town of Australia.
