“A Gentle Giant” premieres at WCFF

“A Gentle Giant” produced and directed by Mark Pearce of Balangara Films debuts as a world premiere film in New York this October. Documentary film on the giant Tasmanian freshwater lobster.
Known to grow to the size of a small dog and live to 40 years old, the giant Tasmanian freshwater lobster is the largest of its kind in the entire world, but its home is being destroyed by sediment runoff from logging. However, there is hope – Todd Walsh the
lobster man has grown up with this crayfish that gently inches its way around the northern
rivers of Australia’s southern-most island. This is his plea to protect a rare and remarkable creature.
