On Australian Shores: Richard Greatorex

This week we visited Richard Greatorex who suffered blindness as he claims as a result of having a mixture of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T in his eyes as an Agriculture Protection Worker in the Kimberley region of Western Australia in the late 1970'2 and early 1980's.

Richard's story highlights the many difficulties that he has endured as a result of his blindness and the effects this has had on his immediate and extended Family. We returned a few days after the first film shoot to find Richard's immediate family present who can attest to the many and varied ways in which this legacy has affected Richard. This return to the source or 'kalara' ensures that the permissions required of the primary producer, Richard Greatorex, are respected and that the process of editing through to final resolved short film are transparently approved.
