Mum How Do You Spell Gorbatrof?

Australia, 1986

Film

A wonderful story that looks at the way one young Australian boy, Eamen Burke, pushes his capacity to speak up for himself in a world careering towards destruction. Eamen’s message is simple; “If people have the capacity to make bombs, then they should have the capacity to take them apart again - there’s so much beauty in the world that it would be a shame to spoil it”
