Trekking the Annapurna Circuit (Multimedia documentary)

2016

"Trekking the Annapurna Circuit" was published by the Sydney Morning Herald in 2016 to widespread acclaim. It documents my six-week journey around one of the most popular treks in Nepal, in the wake of the 2015 earthquake.

BIO

LaughBW.jpg

I'm a filmmaker, journalist and educator living in Melbourne, Australia. I teach video journalism and documentary filmmaking at Swinburne University of Technology. 

Before becoming a uni lecturer, I worked variously as a video journalist, a print journalist, and a filmmaker. My second short film, Shut In, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011, and I'm the writer-producer-director of two features, Coffee (2009) and Bunyip (coming soon). 

In 2022-2023, I am working on a short documentary and a feature documentary as part of my PhD studies. These films, which explore Covid-vaccine-hesitancy and social media, aim to contribute to expanding our understanding of what makes people turn away from mainstream news.
