Joy Think About It

Enduring the worst
drought in living history.


WEIGHT is a window into the lives of a community in central NSW, during the worst drought in living history.
Director Mirco Guidon, accompanied by DP Jack Shepherd and Sound Op Luke Fuller,  wanted to find out what it was like to endure such challenges, and what keeps them pushing onwards.

The team travelled to Warren and spent the better part of the week out there: building connections with the locals and following their everyday lives.
Fortunately, by the time this project was completed in May 2020, drenching rain had fallen across much of NSW and the farmers we talked to are expecting a great year ahead.
