MESSAGE FROM THE PREMIER OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA I extend a warm welcome to patrons of DocWeek, which is presented in partnership with the Adelaide Festival. Our Government welcomes the return of this exciting documentary festival that builds on the success of last year’s inaugural event. DocWeek is a festival that uses a variety of different forums to celebrate documentary. Filmmakers, producers and broadcasters from all over the world will descend on Adelaide to take part in an industry conference designed to progress their art. There is also a wonderful screening program which celebrates this unique vehicle to record and communicate information, ideas and history. It is a festival like no other, showcasing a retrospective body of work from several master filmmakers, alongside some of

Australia’s brightest new talent who are presenting their first works. Our collaboration with the Asia Pacific is a new element that has been added to this year’s Festival. We will see some outstanding new talent from across our region present their new work. Adelaide is an exciting place to be in March and DocWeek is no exception. I trust you will find the program informative and highly entertaining.

The Hon Jay Weatherill MP

MESSAGE FROM THE AIDC CO CHAIRS Welcome to DocWeek 2014 - Australia’s annual national documentary and factual television conference, trade show and festival – a unique and comprehensive celebration of documentary films and filmmakers and the opportunity for factual screen content producers to develop networks, facilitate business, gather market intelligence, share knowledge and, above all, have a great time. DocWeek was spectacularly launched in 2013, taking the 26-year-old AIDC conference to a new level by connecting content creators with audiences, while building on the speakers and events that have always been at the centre of our activities. DocWeek is the umbrella event that delivers an annual conference program, a documentary film festival and a suite of specific programs that cater for particular industry needs

and provide a much-needed platform for industry debate and policy discussion. This year, DocWeek will continue to excite, inspire and challenge participants with a range of activities, sessions, screenings and networking opportunities combined with a strong focus on social events. We are thrilled to be in Adelaide again and can’t wait to showcase some of the amazing sites, food and culture in our host city and surrounds. Thank you for your support.

Lori Flekser & Ray Pedretti

message from the executive director Be Here Now In late 2013 my friend and filmmaker Peter Wintonick died. When he was diagnosed with cancer only five weeks before his death, he started work on a new film, as filmmakers do. The film is titled Be Here Now and his friends will complete the work Peter started. Be Here Now could also be an excellent title for a documentary film festival. Documentary is an art form that gives you an often unfiltered, direct account of the here and the now. Through the eyes of documentary filmmakers we are allowed to be here now. This is the gift filmmakers can give you. This year we will be presenting over 40 films that will give you the chance to be here, and there, and there, and there now. We’ll take you to the city of Detroit to see how the resilience and creativity of humankind transforms a dying city into a playground. From Detroit, we’ll visit New York, the Vatican, Vietnam and Marion in sling time. We’ll cover doping, travelling, writing and filmmaking.

The camera also turns on Adelaide in our Hometown Adelaide program. Very proudly, we present you our regional showcase, the Asia Pacific New Documentary Program. Eleven up and coming directors from Australia, Asia and the Pacific will come to Adelaide to present their work and compete for the Asia Pacific New Documentary Award. I am looking forward to being here with you at DocWeek 2014 in March. We are in for a full six days, with screenings, industry sessions and the Australian International Documentary Conference. Adelaide will be the centre of the documentary community and you are invited. I would like to thank the Government of South Australia for its tremendous support. Thanks also to our sponsors, volunteers, you, the audience and of course the staff and Board behind this event.

All films are classified R18+ unless otherwise specified

Where do cities come from and what do they become? A city is constructed as much by images and stories as it is by bricks and mortar. Documentaries can be both a historic reference and a steppingstone to alternative urban scenarios. Moderated by 891 ABC Adelaide radio presenter Ian Henschke, this panel brings together a dynamic, multi-disciplinary group of creative

experts, political and social analysts and urban provocateurs. The discussion will build on the archiving of Adelaide’s unique transformations through the lens of Gillian Armstrong’s friends Kerry, Josie and Diana. From this historic vantage point, the panel will speculate, debate and explore future visions of, and for, the city of Adelaide.

Co-directed by Sam Cullman Hippies. Drop-outs. Tree-huggers. This film spares us the stereotypes and labels. Instead it uses previously unseen archival footage and intimate interviews to tell the remarkable story of eco-activist Daniel McGowan. McGowan is actively connected to the Earth Liberation Front - a radical coalition responsible for arson attacks on companies associated with environmental exploitation. It lands him in hot water he faces a lifetime in prison. Complicit in burning down two of Oregon’s lumber mills in 2001, McGowan became America’s number one domestic terrorist threat.

Street Fight is a tough, brave study of American politics. A hard-hitting collision of power, class and corruption infests the campaign for Mayor of Newark, New Jersey in 2002. It’s a gripping David-and-Goliath showdown between two African American Democrats.

The Armstrong Lie

Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

Lance Armstrong - he was given the keys to Adelaide, brought unprecedented world attention to our Tour Down Under and was celebrated by hundreds of thousands like a local hero. In early 2013, the dream was shattered. The sporting world came to a standstill as the biggest fraud in the history of professional sports unraveled. Academy Award® winning documentary film director Alex Gibney, set out to chronicle Armstrong’s comeback to competitive cycling after his retirement in 2005. Instead he witnessed the

spectacular fall from grace by one of the greatest legends of our time. In this gripping film, Gibney had unprecedented access to Armstrong himself, his colleagues, former teammates and the sport’s top administrators. In true Gibney style the film drills down deep under the surface. DocWeek in association with Sony Pictures, is proud to present the 2014 opening night film, The Armstrong Lie. The session time includes the provision for welcome speeches.

Dr. Hunter S. Thompson – a famous writer, political activist, and reporter with a fearless style of journalism. He is also famous for his excessive lifestyle including copious amounts of cocaine, alcohol, acid and anything he could use to open his mind. As the name suggests, this film recounts Thompson’s life. Like the road trip he is famous for, it is entertaining, crazy and fast paced. It travels through major milestones in his personal life, and centres on the most controversial period of his work from 1965 – 1975.

Every word you hear during the film is quoted from Thompson himself – from his articles, manuscripts, letters and home movies. And it’s narrated by Johnny Depp – who played Thompson is the outrageous screen adaptation of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Bold, on the edge, ruthlessly honest and determined. This film is a wild ride into the life of an iconic writer.

Park Avenue: Money, Power and The American Dream

 Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer

2012 • 1hr 3mins • USA • Democracy Pictures, LLC 7pm • Saturday 8 March • Mercury Cinema

2010 • 2hrs 3mins • USA • Rated M • © 2010 ES Productions, LLC 4.30pm • Saturday 8 March • Mercury Cinema

Over the past four decades, income disparity amongst American citizens has skyrocketed. The American Dream - the equal opportunity for prosperity and success, achievable for all citizens through hard work - is crumbling away. Director Alex Gibney pinpoints the most burgeoning gap of inequality along one of New York’s most famous boulevards: Park Avenue. Number 740 Park Avenue, Manhattan – it’s home to the highest number of billionaires in America. While only ten minutes away across the Harlem River, Park Avenue in the South Bronx is the poorest Congressional district in the country, where the average person makes only $40 a day.

Park Avenue: Money, Power and the American Dream is an eye-opening film that proclaims a disturbing reality. The super-rich are buying their way into the political process, to ensure that they stay rich. They are buddying with the politicians and influencing the system for themselves - a tax break here, a tax cut there. This film is based on the bestselling book 740 Park: The Story of the World’s Richest Apartment Building by Michael Gross. It is compelling and thought provoking. It demonstrates how the inequality of wealth has been politically engineered by the residents at the most exclusive address in America.

As New York attorney general, Eliot Spitzer was famous for prosecuting Wall Street frauds and closing in on prostitution rings. His popularity saw him rise to Governor of New York with exceptional election results. Winning an unprecedented percentage of the vote, Spitzer was touted for political greatness. Yet as sharp as Spitzer’s rise to the top, was his demise: spending $30,000 a night on call girls plummeted his stock price and so he rolled. With a stack of enemies against him, filmmaker Alex Gibney presents a convincing case on the political conspiracy surrounding the fall of Spitzer.

This is a shocking, confronting and saddening story, which investigates the secret crimes of the Catholic Church. Silence in the House of God gives a voice to four brave, central characters. These four men were abused as boys - by a priest who did the same to over 200 deaf children at a boarding school under his control. As filmmaker Alex Gibney tells their story, a deep and dense conspiracy unfolds, that extends from Wisconsin right around the globe to Rome.

This film explores the cover-ups and the secretive culture of the Vatican. It removes the shroud that protects the evil within. Some even say that it fueled the Pope’s early retirement. With his intricate research and captivating storytelling style, Alex presents an engaging story. It turns the spotlight on a subject that is so important, and often so hard to tell.

This film is complete with news reports, photographs, re-enactments of conversations, and interviews including with Spitzer himself. Spitzer’s ruthless temper and steel-like arrogance add fuel to the fire of this sex and power saga. Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer dissects the political games in the upper tiers of American life. It satisfies the collective obsession to know the misgivings in powerful people’s lives. It is slick and fascinating.

A film by Alex Gibney & Alison Ellwood It is freewheeling 1964. We’ve read Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, we’ve painted our rickety school bus, we’ve packed our stash of weed, LSD and other treats – we’re ready to roll and make history. Magic Trip follows the liberating and romp-filled road trip across the country with best-selling author, Ken Kesey and his busload of friends. With camera in hand, this LSD-fuelled expedition was to be the subject of a Kesey-made documentary – though it never came to pass in his lifetime.

Almost 50 years later, Oscar®winning director Alex Gibney and Alison Ellwood have restored and recreated this outrageous journey. Witness the original footage from Kesey’s archives, and join him on the road trip. Take a seat on the bus – if you dare. This film captures the changing breed in American youth. It represents the emerging counter-culture and no-boundaries psychedelic movement. It is an off-the-wall time capsule piece. It’s the 60’s, the freedom, and the all-important trip.

Filmmaker Alex Gibney masterfully tells the tale of one of America’s biggest business scandals. Enron is the infamous Texas energy company that was built on a corporate ideology that made no sense. It was once the 7th largest company in America - before collapsing into bankruptcy in 2001. Before the waning smoke and mirrors, Enron had wrapped everyone in corporate America around its little finger - analysts, reporters and the like. This film puts us up close and personal.

Taxi to the Dark Side is the Academy Award® winning documentary by filmmaker Alex Gibney. It is the film that has forged his place as one of the preeminent filmmakers of our time. Gibney investigates the homicide of an innocent taxi driver in Afghanistan by way of the corrupt hand of the Bush administration - and discovers a chilling state of affairs. Meticulously detailed and researched, Taxi to the Dark Side is intense and profound. It features honest and confronting interviews, access to classified documents and never seen before images from inside razor-fenced prisons including Guantánamo Bay.

This film stacks damning evidence against the Bush administration. It uncovers the wrath of illegal detainment, torture and death of persons under US custody. It exposes the destablisation of the Geneva Conventions and human rights, in the name of American justice. It is disturbing and brutal. And questions: Has the greatest democracy in the world lost its own sense of humanity? “Powerful. One of the really pivotal indispensable documentaries of this decade. It will stand as an important historical record.” New York Times

We listen to the traders on the floor who siphon excessive profits from the Californian energy crisis. We meet the executives who took the lot – over one billion dollars, at the expense of thousands of investors and employees who lost everything. Face-paced and ironically witty, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, is a compact and entertaining film – delivered with punch. It is an intriguing saga all about “money, money, money”, power, popularity, profit and greed.

DEnnis o’rourke In 2013, Australian documentary filmmaker, maverick and social activist Dennis O’Rourke passed away.

To honour Dennis and his tremendous contributions to Australian documentary, Dennis’ 1988 masterpiece,

Cannibal Tours , will be screened during DocWeek. His ongoing influence on documentary filmmakers working today is celebrated with the world premiere screening of My Long Neck by Shalom Almond.

clash of cultures international tourism brings.

A film by Dennis O’Rourke A committed truth seeker and nonconventional storyteller of the human condition, Dennis O’Rourke was one of the most courageous documentary filmmakers of his generation. Cannibal Tours is a philosophical journey. Rich, bourgeois tourists cruise the Sepik River in the jungles of Papua New Guinea for an experience of the ‘other-kind’. Unveiled is a biting commentary on anthropology. While the cameras roll, tourists drive a hard bargain to buy local items, and pay to view formerly sacred ceremonies their money talks. The Papua New Guineans try to hold onto their world, while the tourists try to

take it over. ‘We sit here confused,’ one laments, ‘while they take pictures of everything.’ O’Rourke’s camera captures this awkward relationship between the traveller and the resident, between those who watch and those who are being watched. It is a story of cannibalism – of eating our own – but not in the way that you might first think. “A dryly funny, perceptive, and terribly disturbing documentary masterwork.” ABC Radio This session includes a pre-screening Q&A.

2013 • 1hr 18mins • Australia 4pm • Sunday 9 March • Mercury Cinema

A film by David Fedele The Land Between is a close account of the hidden lives of Sub-Saharan African migrants. Living in the Gourougou Mountains of northern Morocco, these migrants have traveled far, from troubled countries including Mali, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, the Congo… And the list goes on. Most of these migrants dream about entering Europe through Melilla, a Spanish enclave on mainland Africa. But three barriers and fences eight meters high stand between limbo and a better chance in life. It is the land between.

With unique and unprecedented access, The Land Between witnesses the harsh daily existence the migrants endure and the extreme violence perpetrated by authorities. Relentless and thought provoking, The Land Between gets in deep and cuts beyond a despairing situation. Filmmaker David Fedele gracefully captures these determined spirits - in camaraderie and brotherhood – and in sharp hope, that their voices will be heard. In French and Bambara with English subtitles.

A film by Shalom Almond My Long Neck follows the contemplative life of a long neck Kayan woman from Burma - Maja. As a refugee, she lives in a tourist village with her young family in Northern Thailand. It is touted as a ‘human zoo.’ For the past 20 years, Maja has proudly worn her neck coils - a display of her Burmese tradition. Yet for most of this time - and for other women like her Maja has been the detached subject of endless happy snaps and kitsch souvenirs. This detached subject is a world away from her own identity.

Following a fortuitous meeting with an Australian filmmaker, Maja gets behind a camera for the first time and documents what it means to live in a human zoo.

Or should we wait for someone else to change our lives? This session includes a post-screening Q&A with filmmaker Shalom Almond.

A film by Heidi Ewing & Rachel Grady This once-grand Motor City is now almost a ghost town. The schools are being closed down, the work has moved off-shore, the residents are being asked to leave, and the empty houses are being demolished. But some have stuck it out, refusing to give up, and insisting on upsizing their city, once again. This film introduces you to several of these fighters - a young blogger, a union representative, inspired artists and a gang of illegal scrappers. They share their own interpretation of Detroit’s problems - and Detroit’s opportunities.

2013 • 1hr 47mins • USA 7pm • Friday 7 March • mercury Cinema

Against all the odds, it is these people who are ever hopeful for their city - for a new identity. They are the instigators of change. As onlookers around the world remark, ‘that could never happen to us’ this film provides an answer to the underlying question, ‘are we resilient enough to reinvent ourselves if it did?’ “The most moving documentary I have seen in years.” The New York Times “It’s elegiac, beautiful and quietly devastating.” New York Magazine

A film by Grace Lee Over the course of her life, Grace Lee Boggs has spent a lot of time thinking. And she plans to do a lot more. She would advise us all to do likewise. It’s powerful stuff. Aside from thinking, Grace has dedicated more than seventy years to the African American movement and is a staunch activist for labour and civil rights in Detroit. This enthralling and brilliant 97 year-old, has lived in the Motor City for over 50 years. And the city’s plight has propelled Grace into fifth-gear.

Through her ideas, writings and belief in the power of conversation, Grace is leading local minds to think imaginatively and critically - to find a different way forward, to make an actual change. Grace is the quintessential revolutionary. She believes transformation begins with oneself – and it’s this transformation that has the capacity to transform the world. American Revolutionary provides us all with a moment for self-evaluation. Are we all actually living life? Are we making a difference? Are we taking a stand? And if you answered, ‘no’, then Grace will inspire you – to think, act, and be the revolution.

A film by Tom Putnam & Brenna Sanchez Vanishing industry and racial tension has seen almost half of Detroit’s population make an exodus over the past 50 years. Left standing are some 80,000 deserted structures and a harrowing framework of declining city services. This film follows the footsteps of Engine Company 50 of the Detroit Fire Department, one of the busiest firehouses in America, and the newly appointed ‘out of town’ Detroit Fire Department Commissioner.

Burn is a portrait of the hardworking men and women who are faced with crippling equipment shortages, the politics of the City Council and the DFD – and are struggling to hang on. The film is a study of leadership, a story of spirit and belief in a city worth saving. It is a story of change and adaptation. Burn is an intricate film with an energetic, visual style. It is a passionate homage to a group of inspiring and altruistic individuals – the firefighters.

Directed by Terry Carlyon In the hands of police, a gun can be a potent deterrent. In extreme circumstances it can also be the instrument of death. Public debate about the use of deadly force rages every time a police member kills in the course of duty. But rarely does it consider the personal trauma of anyone – except of course those close to the victim. Trigger Point takes us deep inside police culture, in search of answers to the tragic chain of events when police

use firearms against the citizens they are sworn to protect. It features previously unseen footage and emotional testimony from officers who made the split-second decision to shoot - and have never spoken publicly until now. Trigger Point is a rare and engrossing insight into the consequences of strapping a gun onto your body as part of your daily routine.

Produced by Artemis International and Serendipity Productions Directed by Lisa Matthews The fascinating television documentary series, Who Do You Think You Are? follows well-known Australian personalities, in search of their family ancestry, locally and across the globe.

docweek interactive Discover a different documentary world. This program invites you to experience documentary adventures at your leisure. The City Library offers a user-driven space where you can interact with the documentaries, one-on-one. Explore them all or just one – stay for an hour or a day, it’s up to you.

Free • Available for on-demand viewing and interaction during opening hours Tuesday 4 – Sunday 9 March • Media Lab, City Library level 3, rundle place, rundle mall (francis st entrance)

Program curated by John MacFarlane In the background, there are often arguments happening about interactive documentary. Some of them are about what it should be called: it could be ‘interactive documentary’, or ‘transmedia’, or ‘web doc’, or something else. A wise perspective on this is: Who cares? What we call it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that people have always used new media and new tools to tell stories about the world, to communicate truth, to challenge

perspectives, to show people reflections of themselves within strangers and otherness – usually with little concern about a formal definition. That’s up to other people. The online space is the site of great experimentation by a growing number of creators, among them, increasingly, broadcasters, newspapers and filmmakers. As audiences fragment, devices proliferate and entertainment options explode, these efforts to reach people in new ways become even more crucial.

2013 • Canada
 Produced the National Film Board of Canada
 The Last Hunt dives deep into the motivations that led Montreal photographer Alexi Hobbs to photograph his grandfather’s last hunting expedition, exposing both the strength of family bonds and the implicit spirituality within the endlessly pragmatic act of hunting.

please don’t rush

2014 • Australia Free • Available for on-demand viewing during opening hours Tuesday 4 – Sunday 9 March • Studio 1, City Library level 3, rundle place, rundle mall (francis st entrance)

2014 • 1hr 56mins • Australia & Laos 6pm • Sunday 9 March • Palace Nova eastend Cinema

Produced by Urtext Films An online digital album that brings together video portraits of people from around the world. Simple and minimalistic, each portrait is a single, unedited moment - some interviews are short, others are shorter. Pick a portrait, and view a deep and personal insight about a stranger in an immediate way. This intimate meet-and-greet is the brainchild of Adelaide-based filmmakers Matthew Salleh and Rose

A film by Matthew Salleh & Rose Tucker At a school for blind in Laos, children who cannot see are raised away from their families. For many, their parents have abandoned them, as the difficulty of raising a blind child in impoverished Laos is too much to bear. Amazingly however, their failing sight if often treatable. Sometimes a simple pair of prescription glasses is all it takes to find the cure.

Tucker from Urtext Films. So far, portraits have been produced in Australia, Spain, Thailand, Japan and the United States – and this interactive album continues to grow. DocWeek 2014 is the first time Portrait Mode has been placed in a physical installation space. It was awarded the 2011 SA Screen Award for Innovation in Digital Media. www.portraitmode.org

All films are classified R18+ unless otherwise specified

In English and Lao with English subtitles. Screens as part of a double-bill with Blush of Fruit. See page 11 for further information.


worlds in collision Adelaide International 2014 Curated by Richard Grayson Adelaide International 2014 features artists who suggest new ways of modelling and imagining the world, who map the edges of what is known, and who investigate the potentials of what might lie beyond. Worlds in Collision looks at technological, political, psychological and psychedelic exploration and the ways artists imagine alternatives to arrive at new understandings of potential and transformation.

Documentary, time travel, digital frontiers, abandoned Star Wars sets, near-death experiences, and second moons herald the foundations of this diverse and extraordinary selection of artists and artworks, shown across four sites.

The collaborative practice of Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige focuses on the images, representations and history of their home country, Lebanon. Together, they have directed documentaries and feature films such as Al Bayt el Zaher (1999) and A Perfect Day (2005) and their works are part of many important collections, including the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, Guggenheim, New York, Victoria & Albert Museum, London, and the Sharjah Art Foundation. They were recipients of the 2012 Abraaj Capital Art Prize for the video installation A Letter Can Always Reach Its Destination.

Katie Paterson’s work constantly references intangible, natural phenomena, such as the moon. She combines sophisticated and totally mundane technologies to allow people to engage with the natural environment. She has exhibited internationally, from London to New York, Berlin to Seoul, and her works have been included in major shows including the Hayward Gallery, Tate Britain, Kunsthalle Wien and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney. Co-produced by the Adelaide Festival, Katie Paterson’s Second Moon project will track the cyclical journey of a small fragment of the moon as it circles the Earth on a man-made commercial orbit. You can follow Second Moon’s journey by downloading the free mobile app from the itunes app store.
