tender Tender the documentary
Set against the stunning backdrop of the industrial seaside town of Port Kembla, a feisty and resilient community group have determined to take back the responsibility that most of us leave to someone else – to care for their own dead. Scattered throughout are stories that cut to the core revealing why this small band have decided to take on a practice that for most is taboo.
As their plans for community-based funerals gather momentum one of their own is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. TENDER is at once a heartbreakingly beautiful and beautifully funny glimpse of an extraordinary community taking on one of the most essential challenges of human life…its end.
Then it will be shown on ABC Television at the new time of 10.20pm on Sunday, 22nd June 2014. Or viewed on iview after that date.

Usually the Southside Festival is a large event next to the Coomaditchie Lagoon, which most of the community comes out for.
However, due to lack of funding this year the festival was in the form of a Film night, down at Coomaditchie Lagoon on Wednesday night, 2nd October 2013.
The film a "Bran Nue Day" was shown.
