Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Have your Perfect Say

Here in the Byron Shire our crisis is so famous it’s made international news. It’s been in the US Rolling Stone even. It’s been in documentaries. It’s been in The Guardian. It’s what we live with here – every day. We live in a community where there is nowhere to live and the whole world is watching what we do next, wondering if we will do what their super star tourist destinations did and regulate the housing market. People in places like Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona and Miami found out that tough regulations actually aren’t bad for business after all. That’s just property market profiteering propaganda.

It’s been a long wait for Avatar fans and now it’s over with the epic sci-fi follow-up  Avatar: The Way of the Water screening in cinemas this week.

The highly anticipated return to the spellbinding world of Pandora is set more than a decade after the events of the first film. The Way of the Water begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Worthington as Jake Sully, Saldaña as Neytiri and Sigourney Weaver as Kiri, Jake and Neytiri’s adopted teenage daughter), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive and the tragedies they endure, once a familiar threat returns to finish what was previously started. 

The family must leave their home and explore the regions of Pandora – Jake must fight a difficult war against the humans as he Neytiri and the army of the Na’vi race to protect their planet.

As the title would suggest, there is a lot of underwater action, and most of the cast learned free-diving for the film and filmed scenes underwater.

Avatar: The Way of the Water  screens at Palace Cinemas Byron Bay and Ballina Fair Cinemas this week.
