Fertile Films

Defiant Lives is the new title for our documentary formerly know as  Weird and Wonderful - The Rise and Fight Of the Disability Rights Movement.  This feature length documentary is currently in post production.  It has been in development and production for more than 5 years and has been supported by Film Victoria, The City Of Melbourne, a Churchill Fellowship, the Victoria Departement of Human Services, Screen Australia and The Trasnport Accident Commission to a total so far of $150,000.  

The process of making this film has been long and littered with part time work.  We are committed to completing the film in 2015 but still need funds for completion.  A new trailer will be available soon but in the meantime you can find our more about the documentary including watching a short teaser here: www.weirdandwonderful.net

In 2010 Fertile Films’ proprietor Sarah Barton was awarded a prestigious Churchill Fellowship to travel to the United Kingdom and the United States to research and record interviews for Defiant Lives the documentary. You can read Sarah's Churchill Fellowship Report here
