A hoppy film, an inspiring brew

Antenna Documentary Festival & Young Henry’s –
A hoppy film, an inspiring brew

 

Antenna Documentary Film Festival Artistic Director David Rokach and Co-Director Rich Welch spend hour upon hour watching documentary films and passing critical judgement. But this week they turned their palates to judgements of the taste variety, sitting down with our partners at Young Henrys Brewery and selecting their favourite brews. And in a bit of role reversal, the folks at Young Henrys have tried their hands at taste-assessment of the arts variety!

Keep reading to find out their respective picks!

Young Henry’s ‘Three Doco Picks’ @ Antenna Festival

The Charro of Toluquilla 

A documentary film about a mariachi singer called Jaime Garcia Dominguez, who became fascinated by the reckless, ladies’ man life- style of the classic Mexican movie characters, but with one difference: he’s got HIV. The film relates the inner maturing process that Jaime undergoes as he chooses between maintaining this lifestyle or becoming a family man.

Aussie docs at Antenna

AUSTRALIAN DOCUMENTARIES at ANTENNA

Here at Antenna we can’t help but beam with pride when we see the breadth of home-grown documentary talent, unearthing and creating stories both uniquely Australian and universally human. In 2016, Antenna presents 19 Australian documentaries in total, including four features, 14 shorts and one Virtual Reality experience.

Four Australian features are in the running for the prize for Best Australian Documentary, to be presented at closing night, and the directors will be holding Q&As after their screenings. SERVANT OR SLAVE (pictured above), directed by Steven McGregor, revisits the time of the Stolen Generation, when thousands of Aboriginal girls were taken from their families by the Australian Government and forced into servitude. The film sheds light on a still raw part of modern Australia’s history, the consequences of which are still felt today. Read on below for more info on the Australian features.

Antenna is also pleased to be presenting our Australian shorts program over two dedicated sessions on Sunday 16 October. The shorts competition showcases the best emerging and established Australian filmmaker talent, with films from some Antenna old friends as well as exciting new faces.
