SYNOPSIS

Leunig: How Democracy Actually Works 2001 dir. Andrew Horne (1 min)

“The idea to animate Leunig’s famous characters came from long-time Leunig fans Actor Bryan Brown and LA based feature film director, Roger Donaldson, who thought that Leunig’s lifetime of work should be brought to the screen. Together with Andrew Horne and Deborah Szapiro of Freerange Animation and the talent of documentary filmmakers Katey and David Grusovin, they set about to explore the world of Leunig.” The Screen Guide

Paper City Architects 2006 dir. Daniel Agdag (6:32 mins)

“In a sea of rushing people, within the confines of a cardboard city, one man’s dealing with a bureaucratic figurehead leaves him feeling paper thin.” Daniel Agdag

The Wall 2017 dir. Nick Baker and Tristan Klein (6:10 mins)

“A grandmother and her grandson flee their city - only to reach a tall, endless wall.” Nick Baker and Tristan Klein

Birthday Boy 2004 dir. Sejong Park (9:30 mins)

“This Oscar-nominated short, set during the Korean War, is about a boy who receives an unexpected birthday present with tragic consequences.” Antoinette Starkiewicz

The Bronze Mirror 2007 dir. Susan Danta (6:24 mins)

“An adaptation of a Korean folktale, ‘The Bronze Mirror’ is a gently humorous allegorical tale about how we often fail to recognise ourselves and how readily we pass judgement on others.” Marian Quigley

Seabound 1997 dir. Donna Kendrigan (5:05 mins)

“A rusty, creaking boat holds a haunted tale of an encounter between a fisherman and a mermaid.” Donna Kendrigan

Shadowplay 1999 dir. Susan Danta (4:15 mins)

“In a world of claustrophobic interiors, loneliness causes us to imagine other realities. It is the collusion of our imagined and natural worlds that leads us to the surface of things.” Screen Australia

The Cartographer 2011 dir. Jane Shadbolt (11 mins)

“Polly has mapped the entire world. Almost. There is one last, lost city to go. But to know this place is to destroy it and this city's residents have other plans. Polly has to decide what's where, what's right and how to get out.” Screen Australia

The Crossing 2016 dir. Marieka Walsh (11 mins)

“A stop-motion sand animation film which tells the moving tale of a sea captain and his crew and their struggle to survive.” Screen Australia
