Stunning documentary Conviction by Terry Carlyon screening shortly on ABC. A real privilege to have written the music for this one. Very powerful and moving film, “an intense and riveting study of what it takes to solve a high-profile and emotionally charged murder, told through the eyes of the homicide detectives who brought Jill Meagher’s killer to justice”.

Conviction airs on Tuesday 27th September at 8:30pm

Synopsis: Freedom Stories is an exploration by filmmaker Steve Thomas of the achievements and struggles of former ‘boat people’. Now Australian citzens, they arrived seeking asylum from the Middle-East around 2001 – a watershed year in Australian politics sparked by the Tampa affair and Prime Minister John Howard’s declaration: “We will decide who comes to this country and the circumstances in which they come”. Some were only children when they found themselves in indefinite mandatory detention in remote places such as Woomera or Nauru and then placed on temporary protection visas, which extended their limbo for years. It has taken astonishing resilience and over a decade for them to build secure lives and start contributing to their new country. These are ordinary people who found themselves caught up in the extraordinary consequences of political brinkmanship but have long since dropped out of the media spotlight. They live among us now and given the Government’s boast that it has ‘stopped the boats’ it is time for their voices to be heard.

Deepsea Challenge on SBS this Sunday

January 15, 2016

deepsea-challenge-3d-bluray

For those who missed it, James Cameron’s Deepsea Challenge (sans 3D) is screening this Sunday 17th Jan on SBS at 9:25pm. Worth a look.
A small sample of Brett’s score can be heard here
From the SBS website:

“There are places on Earth with no human history or memories, as remote from us as a distant planet.
The deep-sea trenches are such a place.
The deepest points on the planet, shrouded in eternal darkness, are home to an ocean’s worth of scientific mysteries waiting to be solved.
Now, after years of painstaking work, a team of visionary engineers led by filmmaker James Cameron (“Avatar,” “Titanic”) has built a submersible that for the first time allows humans to visit the deepest part of this hidden world.
It’s an astounding feat of technical wizardry, comparable in difficulty to landing a man on the moon.
Deep Sea Challenge recounts the personal journey of Cameron and members of his engineering and science team as they prepare to make history, fulfilling lifelong dreams in the process.”
