John Pilger Acceptance: The Australian Media Hall of Fame
WATCH THE OFFICIAL TRAILER HERE

Bill Bigelow, co-director of the Zinn Project, wrote a great article about the massive gap in the film, and how kids in school are not being taught the crucial social elements of history.
The Pentagon Papers were massively important, radically so - their real significance is something which is rather glossed over in the film starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep.

As Bigelow puts it -
"...all the U.S. history textbooks on my shelf mention the Pentagon Papers. But none grapples with the actual import of the Pentagon Papers. None quotes Ellsberg or the historical documents themselves, and none captures Ellsberg’s central conclusion about the United States in Vietnam: “It wasn’t that we were on the wrong side; we were the wrong side.” (The Post mangles this insight, instead concentrating on the fact that war planners like Robert McNamara continued to send U.S. soldiers to Vietnam even while knowing that “we” could not win.)"

He astutely points out that
"Ellsberg knew the consequences for his act of defiance. Ultimately, he was indicted on 11 counts of theft and violation of the Espionage Act. If convicted on all counts, the penalty added up to 130 years in prison. This is not the story that interests Spielberg in The Post. However, it is chronicled dramatically in the film The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers, and in Ellsberg’s own gripping autobiography, Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers."

Monsieur Mayonnaise
Category: Music & the Arts | Jewish Family History
Monsieur Mayonnaise is an artist’s epic adventure into his family’s secret past. An engrossing true story, Australian artist and film-maker, Philippe Mora, investigates his father’s clandestine role in the French Résistance in WW2 and his mother’s miraculous escape enroute to Auschwitz. Philippe, a Hollywood cult-horror movie director and pop-artist, adopts a Film Noir persona to tell his family’s story. He also packs his paints and easel, as he embarks on a journey to create an audacious comic book about his parents, their survival and the Holocaust. From LA to Berlin, Paris to Melbourne, Monsieur Mayonnaise is a richly layered, road movie starring artists, real life heroes, Nazi villains … and baguettes with lashings of tasty French mayonnaise!

Black Hole
Category: Environment | Politics | Social Activism & Issues | Coal Mine 
"Black Hole is one of the most important Australian documentaries produced in the last 34 years in this country. It covers environmental activism like no other film and covers one of our biggest challenges to Climate change; the export of coal." ~ Prof. Peter Christof - Climate Politics and Policy, University of Melbourne.

Before Standing Rock, there was Maules Creek. If you want to know what to do about Adani and their Mega Mine, tune in and turn on this film. It is a must see for every Australian concerned about the environment and how they can play an active role in creating a future. WATCH THE TRAILER HERE
