An Unscripted Earth (2020), our award-winning second feature, is now available on Amazon Prime Video after having been selected by international film festivals. It follows two Australian friends who reunite in Manila, among Asia’s fastest growing megacities, untouched by Duterte’s War on Drugs yet unable to drown their own nostalgia and anxiety. Awarded for its direction and a lead performance, it is film about memory, the alienation of wealth, and the uncertain youth of our globalised world.
Six Months to Salvation (2017), our first feature, follows a group of teachers in the mountains of northern Thailand. Critically-acclaimed as “breathtaking”, “thought-provoking”, and “fascinating”, by publications including Film Courage, Study Breaks, Film Blerg, and The Harvard Crimson, it is the first documentary of its length to consider whether ‘voluntourism’ is a modern form of colonialism. It has exhibited theatrically in New York and Melbourne, and had its Australian national TV premiere on the ABC.
Our shorts are also freely available on our website, and our diverse collaborators have included Emmy®-nominated crew and political dissidents. Formed in 2015, we are Lorenzo Benitez, James Holloway and Jonathon Parker.
