This is Going to be Big


This Is Going To Be Big follows a group of teenagers, living with disabilities and neurodiversity, as they prepare for their first high school musical about the life of John Farnham. With support from heart-of-gold teachers and dedicated parents, this is an intimate observation of students who are often left out of the spotlight. Filmed over nine months, this tender and humourous coming of

age documentary explores themes of resilience, friendship, belonging and self- acceptance, and the final performance celebrates love and creativity in equal measure.
