How far are you willing to go to get rid of your debt? When Emily finds herself unable to work she'll quickly have to find out.

"An extremely impressive piece of work." - RogerEbert.com

"One of the pleasures of Plaza’s performance is the way she shows us a person working out her fight-or-flight instincts in real time, and in ever more dangerous transactional situations." - Los Angeles Times

Courtney Barnett doc takes fans inside her on-tour struggles. This intimate new film finds one of indie rock's biggest stars in a crisis of confidence.

Shot on vivid 16mm film over a three-year period, ANONYMOUS CLUB chronicles notoriously shy, Melbourne-based musician Courtney Barnett's ups and downs on the world tour for her album Tell Me How You Really Feel

"A film that Barnett fans will adore -- if you're not familiar with her music, you'll likely emerge a fan by the end." - Indiewire

"One of the best films of 2022. Observant, poignant, a celebration of creating art in hopes of healing. Manages to capture what makes Courtney Barnett one of the great songwriters & what it means to be imperfectly human, vulnerable and attuned." - Director's Club

Three Minutes - A Lengthening movingly captures a moment in time while honouring lives soon to be cut short by unimaginable horror. "The year's most haunting film."

Three Minutes - A Lengthening presents a home movie shot by David Kurtz in 1938 in a Jewish town in Poland and tries to postpone its ending. As long as we are watching, history is not over yet. The three minutes of footage, mostly in color, are the only moving images left of the Jewish inhabitants of Nasielsk before the Holocaust. 

"A great film about filmmaking and a quietly devastating memorial for lives long gone." - Rogerebert.com

"A gripping act of historical detective work." - Digital Trends
