A Girl's Own Story (1984)

This year, tribute is paid to one of the region's most celebrated filmmakers - Jane Campion. With two consecutive Cannes selections and one Short Film Palme d'Or, her early films still hold their own. This year's program presents her five key early short works that include -

Peel: An exercise in Discipline (1982) - a dash of danger and a lot of dry humour on a road trip with family
After Hours (1984) - dark and uncomfortable undercurrents around the sacking of a young female clerk
A Girl's Own Story (1984) - simmering sexuality and fascinating character studies in a unique exploration of youth
Passionless Moments (2000) - the celebration of micro absurdity of suburban life
Lady Bug (2007) - Campion, the only woman represented in an overall work of 34 films of the portmanteau project - To Each His Own Cinema

Gary Foley: Basically Black

Gary Foley: Basically Black spotlights one of Australia's most recognised Indigenous performer and activist Gary Foley. This event includes a special live presentation by Foley and introductions to two classic 70's works, both directed by Phillip Noyce. Be privy to and get under the skin of Gary's life on stage, screen, politics and advocacy. Castor & Pollux: A Tale of Two Spiritual Brothers (1974) is an experimental doco by Noyce; a study of rebels and outsiders and casts Gary Foley in the film. Another opportunity to get under the skin of this great activist and actor.

As part of the JMC Presents: Final Year in Motion collection that presents utterly unique films that'll challenge, amaze and inspire you, see Diana - The Only Female Professional Boxer in Uganda. Rising from Uganda's most dangerous slum to Olympic qualification, Diana was left behind by her own Government from two Olympic games because of her gender. Representing a new breed of female boxers, she's on a mission to be the first woman to represent her country at the Olympics.
