Meet the Filmmakers

Gisela Kaufmann & Carsten Orlt

We are not goat farmers (yet) but story farmers. We have been making documentaries for 30 years, and continue with the same passion and drive that made our previous productions so successful, receiving over 70 national and international film awards. Our 2018 ABC special ‘Farmer Needs A Robot’ brought us back to the roots and the inspiring stories in Australia’s rural heartland.
