Il Palazzo

Shot against stunning landscapes in Florence, Italy, the documentary explores the emotional and practical challenges faced by Australian fashion designer Aneka Manners as she curates a multi-sensory art installation in Florence - the first of anything of it's kind in her career. As we delve into Aneka's 'Art World', which - as a successful banker by day - is balanced precariously with her 'bank world', we start to question the real reasons why she has taken on such a huge project by herself, and what her idea of success really is.

THE ACCIDENTAL ACTIVIST

The rise in anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant rhetoric in the US since the 2016 election has generated a new wave of activists.

This short film, featuring a performance by Mandvi, Lewis Black and Roy Wood, Jr., reveals what led this artist to become an activist, and why it’s important for other artists to step up - “when the world is falling apart, the artist’s job is to say ‘hey, let me tell you a story’”.

My Mom Vala

Greenland is a place of myth. For most of us, it only exists as a story, a legend, a large white shape on a map, a place that got its name through deception. For Vala Árnadóttir, Greenland is very much real. Vala lives in Reykjavik, Iceland and travels to Greenland for work, and to immerse herself in a landscape that’s as beautiful and fertile as it is barren and unforgiving. She also goes there to fish rivers thick with migrating char. But for Vala’s 10-year old daughter, Mathilda, Greenland lives only in the stories that her mother tells and her own imagination. My Mom Vala introduces you to Vala and Mathilda, and shows you Greenland through Mathilda’s fantasies and Vala’s eyes.
