Chemical Media Goes AWOL In The Cocos Islands
It’s a tough gig but someone’s got to do it. Chemical Media has spent much of this year embedded in the Cocos Islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean filming The Cocos Question for SBS’s Untold Australia series. The documentary tells the extraordinary story of Australia’s forgotten Islamic island and the Cocos Malay people who inhabit it as they fight to preserve their culture, assert their identity, and save their island home from destruction. The documentary is supported by Screen Australia and Film Victoria.
Two New Faces At Chemical Media
We’d like to say a big thank you to Film Victoria and extend a hearty welcome to Kauthar Abdulalim and Eren Besiroglu who will spend the next five months inside the Chemical Media circus tent participating in the post-production process on three documentaries as part of Film Victoria’s Documentary Production Placement initiative.
Chemical Media Shoots Monsters For ABC Arts
Chemical Media is currently shooting You See Monsters across Australia for ABC Arts. The 1×60 documentary explores the work of a new generation of Australian Muslims artists who are fighting anti-Islamic bigotry with creativity, satire and irreverence. Supported by Screen Australia and Film Victoria, the documentary follows the creative exploits of six contemporary Australian Muslim artists working on the fault line where art, racism and identity intersect.
