Even though they live worlds apart, Torres Strait Indigenous artist and activist Alick Tipoti and His Serene Highness (H.S.H.) Prince Albert II of Monaco have united to help protect the world’s oceans.
This is a film about two communities on opposite sides of the planet, Monaco and Badu Island, which are concerned by climate change and the many threats to the future of the oceans.
A unique and captivating documentary following the friendship of acclaimed artist Alick Tipoti and (H.S.H) Prince Albert II of Monaco, Alick and Albert offers a profound look at the power of art to connect individuals, forge friendships and initiate change.
MEET THE WALLERS
A unique documentary that follows artist Mark Waller and his family over twenty years. Brisbane based director Jim Stevens captures a very real and uncontrived view of an artist in this heart- warming documentary.
Mark Waller loves to paint the seascapes around beautiful Lennox Head.
He is a dreamer who sees angels in the street. His obsessive belief that charity begins at home doesn’t jibe with his vivacious wife Nicole who wishes she were the charity. But Mark, the painter often can’t see what’s in front of him.
Nicole suffers depression. Their daughters, Jasmine and Emily – babies at the outset and graduates by the end of our story – negotiate their parents’ issues while juggling their own sibling rivalries. When Mark is diagnosed with a deadly Melanoma the fault lines in the Waller family erupt with surprising results.
Filmed over 20 years, Meet the Wallers is a remarkable keyhole into family life, a meditation on art, mortality, philanthropy and happiness.
Join the filmmakers for a Q&A after the screening.
THE BOYS WHO SAID NO!
Oscar-nominated filmmaker Judith Ehrlich tells the story of a mass movement of draft resisters who choose conscience over killing in the Vietnam War. Through dynamic archival footage and compelling interviews with the protagonists, the film chronicles a youth-led movement of nonviolent civil disobedience that ended the draft and helped end the brutal war.
The Boys Who Said NO! captures for the first time the passion, fear, and hope of a generation of nonviolent warriors who broke the law to stand for peace.
“One of the major highlights of this year’s Melbourne Documentary Film Festival …an insightful and comprehensive documentary. The film is especially prescient today as it dovetails in with the Civil Rights movement and the current issues relating to the racial divide in America and the rest of the world.“ – Peter Krausz
A Q&A session with filmmakers will follow this screening.
