OUR POWER (2016) is an empowering and moving documentary about the necessity for a just transition towards sustainable modes of power production in Australia, with a specific look at Victoria’s own energy hub, the Latrobe Valley.
TUNE IN THIS FRIDAY AT 5PM TO HEAR “OUR POWER” DIRECTOR, MR PETER YACONO- live on the drive with Timmy Byrne.
Why is this story important?
Our Power is a documentary that stands to reason why Victoria needs to be the first state in Australia to be the change-makers that lead the country into a more sustainable future.
More importantly, we believe it starts with communities coming together to influence change.
How can YOU help? KISS FM has donated and we hope you can too
This documentary is made on a very limited budget and we depend on people donating their time to us. However, production costs are getting too high for us to continue and we need your help.

***Unless we manage to raise the full $10,000 we will not be able to continue making this documentary as we simply will not have the time or money to go on.
We would hate for this to happen. We truly depend on your good heartedness, so that we can continue on this fight with communities, NGO’s and people like yourselves.
Australia has potential to be great. We believe this story needs to get out, and we hope you believe this too.***
For the last 7 months, our main team of two have been working full time 40 hour weeks, at all times of the day to put this documentary together (which means interviews, research, networking, editing and concept development).
We have been financing this documentary from our own pockets and have spent $10,000 (excluding crew costs).
We are very lucky and very thankful to our wonderful team who are donating their time, effort and energy to the project. We simply couldn’t do it without them.
We are independent documentary crew who are passionate about this story and about film. We are hardworking and will continue to work hand in hand with communities to ensure the narrative is accurate. We truly hope this film contributes to the debate of a transition towards sustainable modes of power production.
From the bottom of my heart, I sincerely hope you will be able to support us.
Your Director, Peter Yacono. KISS FM Member & DJ – DJ YAK/3 Fold Radio 2007-2013
