Durt’Yowan (Latrobe River) Life Source film
After successful preview screenings and meaningful community discussions in Sale, Traralgon and Warragul, we’re pleased to publicly release our new short documentary Durt’Yowan (Latrobe River) – The Life Source.
The video tells the story of Durt’Yowan, the Gunaikurnai name for the Latrobe River and one of Victoria’s iconic rivers. Beginning near the Baw Baw plateau, running through the Latrobe Valley and into the Gippsland Lakes, Durt’Yowan has been the life source for people in Gippsland for thousands of years.
The film is aimed at getting the conversation started on the future of the river. Panel discussions after each preview screening demonstrated the passion for the river from its headwaters to the lower Latrobe wetlands and how the community wants to be involved in a positive future.
