On 7th February 2009, Australia suffered its worst peacetime disaster.
‘Black Saturday’ claimed 173 lives, left more than 7,000 homeless and destroyed close to half a million hectares of Victorian bushland.
One year on, Inside the Firestorm tells the story of what happened. Using never before seen footage, this documentary is a social record, a film that commemorates a catastrophe as seen through the eyes of those who were there.
Narrated by Hugo Weaving, this documentary is dedicated to those who lost their lives on Black Saturday.
