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.
