Meet Local Film Maker AARON J MARCH & see his Award winning film HERON's STORY


Greetings Friends


In 2007 Paulo Coelho had the idea to create a film directed by directors (something that has never been done before in film making history) – each director telling the story of one of the 15 narrators from the book. Paulo invited film makers from around the world to submit their film for potential selection into the final 15. Written, Directed, Edited & Starring (amongst many other things!) local film maker, Aaron J March, HERON'S STORY won first prize out of 6,000 applicants.

We are extremely proud to present the Fleurieu Premiere of this wonderful film and give you an opportunity to meet the film maker, Aaron J March on Friday 13th February 2009.

The film commences at 8pm with a short intermission part way through and a question & answer session after the film.

Delicious snacks & beverages will be available throughout the night.

Bookings are essential so please get in touch as seating is limited.

"Based around the novel by Paulo Coehlo (The Alchemist, Veronika Decides to Die), The Witch of Portobello, Heron's Story is of a woman in her mid twenties - Athena, as told through the eyes and memories of Heron Ryan, a forty four year old journalist. Athena, now dead, some twelve years earlier was a source of fascination, inspiration and above all else love, for Heron.

Heron sits in an English pub, recounting his version of events and his love for Athena, to a man who is writing her biography…


He remembers the magic and the mystery of the times gone by. Heron tells of their first meeting in Romania, their adventures in London, Athena's rise as a spiritual icon, her transformation into a goddess, her powers of intuition, the media frenzy around her and her ideas."
