Call for a Poetic City/Youth on Strike

Documentary Double Bill!

CALL FOR A POETIC CITY: Horse-riding in a large city centre isn't a touristic endeavor, but undertakes a unique role at the community level. The Nye family, who arrived in London from Australia in the 60's, were passionate about horses. They established stables in Hyde Park, and have been doing a remarkable work at the community level for decades, by democratizing riding in the city. This documentary lets the camera capture the day-to-day routines and challenges of life at Ross Nye Stables, using observational cinematography rather than words. Score by Jonny Greenwood, performed by the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

YOUTH ON STRIKE: In March 2019 over 150,000 Australian students went on strike to demand climate change action. They risked their studies to unite their generation, while still doing their homework. This is the story of how young Aussies defied calls to stay in school and organised one of the largest youth-led movements Australia has ever seen, told by twelve diverse students who vlogged the whole thing. These young people shared their stories of who they are and captured what it took to organise a movement. Using only footage recorded by the students, this is their story, this is Youth On Strike! Q&A after film with Rob Innes (Director)
