On New Year’s Eve 2019, Ash Brennan lost his house in the Conjola Park bushfire which nearly killed his brother and many others who stayed to fight. From a Perth hotel room Ash saw the first image of what used to be his house in the background of a news reporter.

After almost being wiped off the map, a traumatised community waited for help. But it never came. Conjola was abandoned and left for dead. Local artists then started creating. They needed to heal. It gave the community hope and solidified their journey to recovery, together. Ash hopes that this film will be part of that recovery.

Director Ash Brennan said “This film has given Conjola a voice. Up until now, no one has listened. Any awards for this film are accepted on behalf of the people of Conjola, my production team and all those who supported us”.
