An Aquarius Legacy

A 9-minute documentary featuring Paul Joseph looking back 40 years and summarizing the legacy of the Aquarius Festival.

This film project was created by independent filmmakers Mike New (producer/direcor) and Amon Woulfe (producer/editor) for the ABC.

Mike and Amon made this film without a budget to air on the ABC the weekend of May 23/24, 2013, as part of the ABC's mentoring program.

The message is surprisingly powerful and comprehensive for such a short piece.....

Special thanks to PAUL JOSEPH

Made with the assistance of ABC Open North Coast Producer: CATHERINE MARCINIAK

Produced, Written and Directed: MIKE NEW

Editing, Production and Sound: AMON WOULFE
