David Fedele is an award-winning independent documentary filmmaker, photographer and writer from Australia.
David generally works alone as a one-man filmmaker - directing, producing, shooting and editing his own work. He is mainly interested in exploring cultural, humanitarian and social justice issues.
In 2011 David spent 3 months in the remote island of Papua New Guinea, documenting illegal logging, and the impact this is having on local indigenous communities and the environment. The resulting film BIKPELA BAGARAP (Big Damage) 43mins is currently screening at numerous film festivals around the world, and has been broadcast on television in Australia and Papua New Guinea.
At the start of 2012 David spent three months in Ghana, West Africa, exploring unregulated electronic waste (e-waste) recylcling at Agbogbloshie, the largest electronic dumpsite in Africa. Only recently completed, the resulting film E-WASTELAND is currently screening at numerous International film festivals and has been screened at a European Union conference for environmental law, as well as ICT summits in Africa.
David finds documentary filmmaking and photography as a way to combine his natural ability of story-telling, with his love of travel and exploring different cultures, having travelled extensively throughout Australasia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and South America.
