Big Dreamers – Documentary

Tully was a prosperous town in tropical north Queensland, until Brazil dumped its sugar surplus on the global market. The locals call a meeting to save the town from financial disaster. Ron Hunt stands up and proposes to build The World’s Biggest Gumboot in honour of Tully’s rainfall record of 7.98 metres in 1950, declaring that it will put Tully on the map.

With budget blowouts, clashing personalities, and construction endlessly delayed by rain, Ron wonders whether he has made the right decision.

The Freedom To Marry

THE FREEDOM TO MARRY is the nail-biting, untold behind-the-scenes story of the architects of this historic civil rights movement and the brilliant, nerve-wracking campaign to win same sex marriage throughout the United States.
The film follows Evan Wolfson, the architect of the movement, civil rights attorney Mary Bonauto and their key colleagues on this decades-long battle, culminating in a dramatic fight at the United States Supreme Court. More than the saga of one movement’s history, this is an inspiring tale of how regular people can change the world.
