Films to Facilitate Change
Film is a powerful medium that can shine a light on issues not covered by mainstream broadcast and print. It can provide new information on how the world works and inspire people to challenge injustices.
New and diverse perspectives are vital if we're going to create a sustainable world for this and future generations.
Here at Flying Tiger, we are passionate about human rights, social justice, freedom of expression and people-centered advocacy.
We believe that racism, bigotry, and division can be combated by working together, through grassroots education programs, raising awareness, and standing up to power.
Everyday non-confrontational conversations with the people around us can help heal the division felt throughout our society. Without empathy for each other, common ground and consensus, can never be reached.
Films That Challenge the Status Quo
With ecological collapse, global warming, and the prospect of mass extinction on the horizon, now is the time for action.
The banking system, debt, privatisation, intensive farming and fishing, colonisation, and the role of the military in world affairs, all need to be debated seriously and with transparency.
Films that scrutinise these issues are essential in enabling us to engage with the many problems facing us, irrespective of our political persuasions.
We all are sustained by the same world, and we all share the same hopes and dreams for ourselves and our wider families.
The big conversations need to be had.
The Power of the Imagination
The power of imagination should not be underestimated.
Every movement, every system, every human-made object on the planet, started off as an idea in the mind.
If you want to challenge an injustice in the world you must first dare to imagine how things could be different.
The capacity to dream, create, shape and evolve are central to us creating a better future.
Speaking Truth to Power
Mainstream media seems increasingly interested in reporting on the institutions of power rather than civil society.
The well-used phrase ‘Speaking Truth to Power’ which The Fourth Estate is meant hold as its highest aspiration is sadly lacking in much of our media.
In a society where 75% all the print media is owned by four billionaires with their own vested interests, how can we hope to have the correct checks and balances in place?
The Vital Role of Independent Media
Independent media is playing an increasingly vital role in holding power to account, calling out injustices and empowering people to change their world.
At Flying Tiger we use our skills as artists and filmmakers to play our part in striving for a fairer, peaceful and sustainable world.
