Connecting with the Earth
by Lis Shelley
Connecting With The Earth was the Co-Winner of the Tanja Trop Fest 2016 (Documentary) and was broadcast on ABC TV and Radio in November 2015 as part of the ABC Open Project Makers and Creators.
As a little girl in Argentina, Veronica Valderrama dreamed of becoming a dancer. After years of ballet school she became a professional ballerina with the National Ballet Company in Mexico, dancing in the corps du ballet and in principal roles including Swan Lake. Her future husband was an Australian. They met in Mexico City, had a daughter together and decided to move to the Bega Valley in Australia. But Veronica didn’t want to stop dancing. A visit to her grandfather’s birthplace in Spain inspired her to learn flamenco, which she now teaches to her students in Australia. Flamenco grounds her to the earth, unlike ballet which is up in the air. ‘You can dance flamenco anywhere – you can dance flamenco until you die!’
Lis Shelley is a film maker and theatre director based in Lochiel NSW.
UPDATE: Cold Hearts
Cold Hearts’ premiere screening takes place Friday 11 Nov 2016 in Sydney – we can’t wait to see the result! Stay tuned for updates.

Tyke Elephant Outlaw
Winner Best Documentary Portland Film Festival 2015 – Susan Lambert, member of the SEA Screen Advisory Group – Director/Producer
Tyke Elephant Outlaw is the gripping and emotionally charged story of Tyke, a circus elephant that went on a rampage in Honolulu in 1994, killed her trainer in front of thousands of spectators and died in a hail of gunfire. Her break for freedom – filmed from start to tragic end – traumatised a city and ignited a global battle over the use of animals in the entertainment industry. The film goes back to meet the people who knew her and were affected by her death – former trainers and handlers, circus industry insiders, witnesses to her rampage, and animal rights activists for whom Tyke became a global rallying cry.
