The Dust Never Settles

Jess Dickenson
Composed of footage recorded during a fourteen-month, 50,000 kilometer road tour of Australia with a soundtrack by Australian three piece, The Dirty Three. Placing fascinating and humorous encounters with the unconventional individuals who inhabit some of the country's most remote areas against a wilderness of unimaginable magnitude, the director transcends conventions of traditional documentary with her impartial approach and distinctive visual style. THE DUST NEVER SETTLES is a rare document of the endlessly diverse landscape and culture of a continent, and a unique vision of contemporary Australia.
