Documentary screenings – People of the Hydro

Saturday, October 18, 2014 to Wednesday, November 5, 2014

The Hydro was created by ordinary people doing extraordinary things that have helped develop Tasmania’s identity and changed the way we live.

As part of celebrating its centenary in 2014, Hydro Tasmania has commissioned a short documentary film to tell this fascinating story.

People of the Hydro: celebrating 100 years of future thinking focuses on the stories of individuals who have been part of the ‘Hydro family’ in various ways throughout the history of the business.

The half-hour documentary includes stories of challenges overcome, technical innovation, and tracks the changes to the business over 100 years. It’s a thought provoking look at ‘the Hydro’ told in the words of some of the people behind the business.

You can view the documentary at Hobart’s State Cinema from Saturday 18 October – Wednesday 5 November.

Visit the cinema website for session times.
