Sights and Sounds: Australian Short Films

  Noora Niasari, Kitty Green, Sari Braithwaite, and Shannon Murphy

  Australia      2018-2023    


A casting call peers past fiction and reminds us of the human cost of war in The Face of Ukraine: Casting Oksana Baiul. In Waterfall, a family road trip deteriorates when 14-year-old Zahra cannot come to terms with her mother’s new fiance. In a remote forest, an actress immerses herself in the world of the mythical ‘Yowie’ (a mythical creature in Australian folklore) in an attempt to scare thrillseekers in Eaglehawk. Paper Trails lovingly documents the life and work of Anne Deveson, writer, activist, mental health advocate, and the first female on-screen broadcaster in Australia.
