DAVID STRATTON by ASIO

Coinciding with the release of the feature doco on film critic David Stratton here's an ASIO surveillance photo of David on his way to the Russian Embassy.  ASIO decided that those interested in screening films from China or Russia had to be fellow travellers with the Communist Party.  This still is taken from our award winning series PERSONS OF INTEREST.  Note what a dapper figure David cuts.  He always took pride in his appearanceSTRATTON

Here's a sample of some of the films in our catalogue.  Do yourself a favour and buy one for that special, if a little strange, loved one.  Actually you're doing us a favour but we'll return it with the enjoyment you'll get from these unique films.


 

 

Golden Sandals

SYNOPSIS: Rock Star, Artist, writer Reg Mombassa has influenced Australian culture for thirty years. From Mental As Anything to Mambo he's made two generations of people laugh, dance and wonder at the beauty of his creations. GOLDEN SANDALS is a journey into the world of Reg with his aliens, animals and Australian Jesus. It's an animated trip to the roots of what makes Reg tick. When you put on a pair of golden sandals the cares and worries of a fractious world drop away. You enter a parallel universe where ridiculousness prevails. GOLDEN SANDALS is the collected guide to the art, thoughts and life of Reg Mombassa - artist and musician. Using new Spirit Camera technology which allows us to see things which aren't there, we enter his world.

John Cooper Clarke is one of our favourite poets.  His tight rhythms and sharp insights have outlived the punk scene in which he first emerged, opening for acts such as The Clash, Joy Division and Elvis Costello.  He's one of England's National Treasures.  The following interview with John appeared in the English magazine The Idler which gives a great insight into his thinking and how amphetamines saved western democracy.
