Symphony no. 42 – Applying an unconventional narrative this film presents a subjective world through 47 scenes. Small events, interlaced by associations, express the irrational coherence of our surroundings as the differences between humans and animals diminish.
King of Caravans – Offers a rare, sensitive glimpse of real poverty in New Zealand. It’s a picture of a place where people only go as a last resort; where hopes have evaporated into a limbo of emotional and physical subsistence. The film would be heartbreaking if it weren’t for the pride and humour of the people themselves.
Coney Island: Dreams for Sale – Like Byron Bay this once magnificent Playground has survived many battles, but now faces its greatest enemy: corporate greed. Centre stage in the passionate struggle to protect the amusement park from an unscrupulous developer and a group of misguided politicians is newly turned political activist Dianna Carlin, owner of the celebrated Lola Star boutique. This David and Goliath tale chronicles the courage and determination of a community to preserve the spirit and authenticity of a legendary American Icon and an entire way of life against the threat of ruthless real estate development.
