Four Stars for The Go-Betweens: Right Here

THE GO BETWEENS: RIGHT HERE is released in cinemas today! Kriv Stenders directs a “thoughtful, engaging, enigmatic” documentary charting the band’s rise and fall.

The Sydney Morning Herald gives THE GO BETWEENS a glowing four star review:

“The film, and most of the others I mentioned, ought to be compulsory viewing for young bands – how not to screw the pooch – but maybe not. Everyone has to make their own mistakes.”

FilmInk MIFF Best Film: Have You Seen the Listers

FilmInk have interviewed director Eddie Martin after they name his film Have You Seen the Listers as their pick for best film from MIFF.

“I thought of Anthony and he felt like the right character because he is a larger than life kind of guy and his sense of freedom is inspirational too. He is so open and out there, which are qualities we would all like to have.”

MIFF: Kriv Stenders

Director Kriv Stenders has two releases in the 2017 Melbourne International Film Festival: Australia Day and The Go-Betweens: Right Here. Almost polar opposites, both films were shot this year. The Sydney Morning Herald sat down to chat to Stenders about his work:

“It’s my passion, it’s also my living … I joke that I used to make TV commercials, now I make the stuff in between TV commercials.”

Stender’s discusses success, storytelling and the screen. Read more here.

‘Have You Seen the Listers?’ Hits Home

Eddie Martin’s fourth film Have You Seen the Listers? has struck a chord with its subject. Anthony Lister, renowned street artist, has given the film his blessing after getting “quite emotional” on his first viewing.

The film relates how the Brisbane City Council encouraged the then 19-year-old to paint dozens of the city’s traffic signal boxes in 1999. In 2014, the council took Lister – by now earning tens of thousands of dollars per piece and with his works hanging in the National Gallery of Australia – to court on graffiti-related charges.

Director Martin states “essentially it is the story of a young father and his family set in the world of art”.

Have You Seen the Listers? will have it’s world premier at the Melbourne International Film Festival later this year.
