Stuck on a Rock Film Premiere

Coming to CSIRO Hobart is the Tasmanian premiere of ‘Stuck on a Rock’, a new short documentary (32mins) by Melbourne filmmaker Asher Flatt about adventuring into the unknown, extinction, conservation and our fragile connections with nature. This gripping story is about the Lord Howe Island stick insect, a species that managed to cling onto existence in one of the most unlikely spots imaginable. It is told with creativity and humour by those whose passion and dedication have saved the species from extinction, including adventurer Dick Smith who climbed Ball’s Pyramid in 1964 with an intrepid band of scouts.
“It is a remarkable story of how this unique creature was saved from extinction by a group of dedicated conservationists.” – Sir David Attenborough
