Coming to 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 centred on the Lord Howe Island phasmid (giant 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.

This free event is taking place at the CSIRO Auditorium on Castray Esplanade from 5:30pm, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker. For more information (including the trailer) and to register for this exclusive event, go to Asher Flatt website.
