Making War Horse
David Bickerstaff and Phil Grabsky, 50 mins, UK, 2009, Digibeta. Source: Seventh Art.

Before it was an epic Steven Spielberg film, War Horse was an elaborate, blockbuster play - a landmark production that used extraordinary feats of puppetry to bring its equine hero to life.

The inspiring documentary Making War Horse profiles the monumental work that went into creating this acclaimed theatre production, and the groundbreaking techniques used by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company to create lifelike horses onstage.

David Bickerstaff and Phil Grabsky's documentary offers a tantalising glimpse behind the scenes of this stunning theatrical spectacle, which will have its Australian premiere this December in Melbourne.

Love and Politics
Azad Jafarian, 52 mins, USA, 2011, HDCAM. Australian premiere.

New York theatre icon Judith Malina gets a fitting tribute with Love and Politics, an insightful documentary debut from Azad Jafarian.

Anarchist, pacifist and theatre revolutionary Judith Malina has left an indelible mark on the New York arts scene. Having co-founded the oldest experimental theatre group in the US, The Living Theatre, she has spent a lifetime bringing her political and sensual sensibilities to the American stage.

Love and Politics pays homage to the career of a true theatre luminary, following Malina through the ups and downs of the preparations and rehearsals for what may be one of her final productions.
