Ruby Jones hosts a special in conversation event with master filmmaker Julian Rosefeldt and RISING Co-Artistic Director Gideon Obarzanek for the opening weekend of Euphoria.

Known for the “utterly absorbing” (ARTNews) film installation Manifesto starring Cate Blanchett, artist and filmmaker Julian Rosefeldt creates elaborately staged films that investigate the power of language and the conventions of cinema as an allegory for societal and individual behaviours. He continues this examination with the multi-channel film installation Euphoria, which explores capitalism, colonialism. and the influential effects of unlimited economic growth in society.

Ruby Jones is a Walkley-nominated investigative journalist and documentary host who has worked across Australia. She is now the host of 7am, Australia's number one daily news podcast. She was previously the Marchbanks Young Journalist of the Year. Her non-fiction book Barrenjoey Road was released in 2021.

Gideon Obarzanek is a director, choreographer and performing arts curator. Co-Artistic Director and Co-CEO of RISING.
