Luke Altmann “Franklin: Original motion picture soundtrack” CD


Available on backorder



The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Konstantin Shamray, Benaud Trio, and more, feature in Luke Altmann’s original score for the stunning cinematic feature documentary FRANKLIN, directed by Kasimir Burgess.

Eighth-generation Tasmanian and environmentalist Oliver Cassidy embarks on a life-changing solo rafting trip down the beautiful yet remote Franklin River. His goal is to retrace his late father’s 14-day expedition to attend the blockade that saved the World Heritage listed national park from being destroyed by a huge hydroelectric dam project in the early 1980s.

Featuring never-before-seen archival footage and interviews with key players such as Bob Brown and Uncle Jim Everett, the eight-year-long ‘Franklin campaign’ is revealed as the most significant environmental protest in Australia’s history; an inspiring example of the power of non-violent direct action to bring about lasting change.
