An independent feature film is being shot in and around Broken Hill this month.

"Thirst" has been written and will be directed by Robert Carter. It is about four people who are trapped together in the desert. Mr Carter is producing the work alongside Megan George and Mark George. The film is scheduled to be finished at the end of this year.

The three producers have been researching options to bring the project together for six months. Mr Carter said Broken Hill was chosen as the shooting base after a visit last October revealed the "stunning locations and depth of local support for making films".

"Both individuals and organisations in the Broken Hill region have shared the same passion as the producers for helping to make the film come to life," he said. "On the surface, Thirst is a story about water. It is also a story about how we create meaning in our life, how we make and deal with decisions and how we connect with others. "From the beginning to the very end Thirst will captivate and surprise."

The production has been designed as a low budget, low impact film. It is being funded by the sale of Mr Carter's house. For more information, or to help us with the production of Thirst, go to www.thirstthefilm.com or email production@thirstthefilm.com.
