Miss Representation

90 min • Award Winners, Social Issues • 2011

Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Condoleeza Rice and others discuss sexism in American society and the media.

You can’t be what you can’t see.

How does mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in influential positions? And as a result making it difficult for the average girl to see herself as powerful?

You See Monsters

58 min • Arts, Current Affairs, Social Issues, Australia • 2017

In celebration of Global Human Solidarity Day today, meet a new generation of young Muslim artists.

They use their work to explore issues of faith and identity and what it means to be Muslim and Australian in the 21st century.

You See Monsters is a film about the power of art to challenge assumptions, subvert racism and change the way we view the world.

Through art, these artists are fighting back to assert their own agency in the face of anti-Islamic bigotry.

Not with defensive or apologetic arguments, but on the front foot, using the power of their imaginations to create works of art.

With it they are challenging the nation to take a long hard look at it itself.

An eccentric suburban woman and a supermarket employee navigate their evolving relationship in this unconventional love story.

Dina, an outspoken and eccentric 49-year-old in suburban Philadelphia, invites her fiancé Scott, a Walmart door greeter, to move in with her.

Having grown up neurologically diverse in a world blind to the value of their experience, the two are head-over-heels for one another, but shacking up poses a new challenge.
