Premiere in Sydney tonight and at the Sydney Film Festival June 11 and 12 2022.
At last, the film has its premiere at the famous Ritz. Wonderful to see some familiar faces in the room and on the big screen, and on stage. Such a pleasure and an honour to have travelled on this journey. Here’s to success and a few raised glasses.
I’m currently working on a documentary film called EVERYBODY’S OMA that is centred around a family dealing with a mother who has Alzheimer’s disease. The director, Jason Van Gendaren is the son who has documented this amazing story. Many people are effected with this terrible disease or have loved ones they know gone or going through ‘the long goodbye’ journey. This film will touch the hearts of many people globally. The producers and director did an amazing job. I don’t think there’s a single person who will watch this film and not deeply contemplate their lives and their relationships with their loved ones. The film is truly stunning.
It’s been a busy 2021 and it’s unlikely to stop. Covid and Lockdown may have put the brakes on numerous productions, but as things open up, work is revving up. Check out Christmas On The Farm on Stan in December. I’m back working on Hard Quiz – now in season 7. And it’s always a pleasure working with Goalpost Pics again on Small Claims. Plus 3 new feature films on the horizon in early 2022. Also, catch me on ABC Qld Radio talking all things music supervision.
I’m very fortunate to be working on 4 films during these Covid times. All in pre-production, so I can’t say anything about them at this stage, apart from a couple of words: heartwarming, humorous and just the tonic we need come the time of Christmas and beyond. Stay safe.
Nominated for Bio Book of the Year at the Australian Book Industry Awards.
Matthew Walker’s I’m Wanita will make its world premiere at Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival next month. I’m Wanita is Walker’s debut feature, produced by Carolina Sorensen, Clare Lewis and Tait Brady with support from Screen Australia, Screen NSW and the ABC. Filmed over five years, I’m Wanita follows Bahtiyar “a little known but unforgettable country music singer”, from Tamworth to Sun Studio in Memphis, the birthplace of rock’n’roll, through to the streets and studios of New Orleans, and finally country music’s hallowed ground: Nashville, Tennessee. Another great film that I loved working on with great film people!
…for adapted screenplay. Big congrats to Goal Post Pictures
