They saved paradise… including the parking lot!
An inspirational story for our times, The Triangle Wars is the story of the battle being waged between local government, big business and the community over the development of a tiny sliver of crown land on the foreshore of St Kilda. A microcosm of a much bigger story about power, values, compromise and transparency, The Triangle Wars tells the story through three men at the heart of the conflict: an eccentric politician, a celebrity photographer and a high-powered property developer.
Combining a study of democracy in progress with a community’s impassioned struggle against an institutional behemoth, The Triangle Wars highlights the lengths the community will go when they believe their democratic rights are being eroded. It is a battle which will redefine a vital Australian community.
