synopsis - Marty and Eric go to their traffic intersection everyday to wash windscreens. They have to. If they don’t, someone else will come in and take over their stretch. But beyond the job, their life is a tapestry of highs and lows, complicated relationships, and hard work. This is a story of what life is like on the other side of the windscreen.

SILENT SCREAM reveals the strain placed on the family and friends of a 37 year old Aboriginal husband, father and film-maker Lee Willis-Ardler, who is desperately trying to manage his mental illness. We follow Lee as he seeks to find an explanation for the aggressive ‘episodes’ that threaten his marriage – while his family and friends bravely tell us of their struggle - having been left to pick up the pieces by a system that appears designed to treat only those who’ve reached an acute state.

Synopsis- A short documentary about the bizarre subculture of pigeon flying. Pigeon men follows a group of men in Sydney’s Western suburbs, as they travel from backyard to backyard showcasing their birds in monthly flies. Ismail, a fast talking bodybuilder and former national champion judges these competitions.
The obsession and devotion these men have for their pigeons, and the tight knit community of the flyers, is fascinating. They stare into the sky for hours as their pigeons tumble and fly along the skyline, whilst competing to become champion and immortalized through their birds.
Synopsis- Phogotten Times is about the simple Vietnamese dish called Pho consisting of broth, noodles and condiments. An evolution of ingredients that has produced a national icon In Vietnam, before the advent of restaurants and trendy cafes, people squat around small temporary food stalls which server various savoury and sweet dishes. Pho was originally sold by street vendors who carried it over their shoulder by suspending the pot of the broth and other ingredients at either ends of a bamboo pole. More importantly, it is the intimacy of being served by the one who has cooked the food and who will also wash your bowl. It is the interaction, the conversation and the connection, a wonderful cultural heritage that I hope will come out of this documentary and not the satisfaction of a full belly.
