Sweet Running Machines

08 Sep Sweet Running Machines

‘It’s not only about fixing old equipment… It’s about a man-made miracle’. The 70-minute documentary filmed in Tasmania.

Portraying the results of a 20-year revitalisation, this documentary shows how the small Tasmanian community of Sheffield won the battle of ‘to be, or not to be’.

Collectively, they rescued numerous traction-engines, steam-rollers, locomotives and agricultural machines from being scrapped.

By saving industrial heritage, the Redwater Creek Steam and Historical Society empowers the memory of the epoch when Tasmania was the ‘bread-basket’ for early Australia and bridges the history of this island with its British origins.

‘A film of passion, anthropomorphism and redemption.’ – The Examiner, Tasmania

‘Affected for generations by an ‘incurable disease’ – a love of steam machines. Passion and a sense of camaraderie helped them to survive the economic downturn’.

Created by Natalia Laska-Hennessy and Grant Hennnessy, Apple Republic Films, 2015
Co-produced by Apple Republic Films and the Redwater Creek Steam and Historical Society Inc.
