Short film award.

We’re thrilled to announce that the winner of ING DIRECT Flick Pick Award is the Australian short filmJulian, produced, written and directed by Matthew Moore and co- produced by Robert Jago. Julian had its world premiere at Flickerfest in January 2012, winning our Special Jury Prize, before going on to win the Crystal Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.

His screen acting credits include the feature films Burning Man and The Dish, and for television RakeHome and AwayChandon PicturesAll Saints and Me and My Monsters.

More plot summary.

Throughout the day Julian is forced to deal with a bully, an impatient teacher turning a blind eye and a Principal with a secret. As Julian faces these challenges we begin to see the qualities that will inform the man he is to become.

Aussie short film best in Berlin!

Julian, written and directed by Matthew Moore was awarded the prestigious Crystal Bear Award for best short film in Generation Kplus at the festival.


The 13 minute film, about the day in a life of a nine-year-old was produced by Matthew Moore and Robert Jago, with executive producers Ian Darling, Mark Kilmurry, Phillip Verity, Joel Moss, Tara O’Sullivan, Lisa Mann and Katrina Moore.


Of Julian, the Berlin jury said: ““A sophisticated film which accompanies a misunderstood boy on his way to popularity with wit and lightness of touch. The fantastic actor displays his phenomenal talent in portraying the smart protagonist – and surprises us in the process. Really great cinema!”

***LOL ... I agree that it would be best for Julian Assange that he grow up, take Responsibility for the Consequences of his Actions, stop treating Women as PlayThings, and get over himself ...

Doom is nigh!

This AFP reporter consulted Gavin MacFadyen, director of the Centre for Investigative Journalism in London, about the impact an Assange conviction would have on free speech.


“The consequences of an Assange conviction would obviously have a chilling effect on an already frightened U.S. press establishment,” said MacFadyen. “It would mean that whistleblowers would feel they are at greater risk than ever before. This after all is occurring in an increasingly Orwellian climate, where huge sections of the population are already subject to mass surveillance, and millions more will be shortly, where the abrogation of civil liberties and the increase in police powers continues at an alarming pace.


“Once these new powers are in place . . . I would fully expect a decline in heroic publishing,” he said. “I would also expect to see fewer would-be whistleblowers, knowing that all their correspondence and messages are now visible to the very authorities they may be whistleblowing against.”


Pilger has a similar take:


“A conviction of Assange would be little different from a political conviction in the Soviet era,” he said. “It will be concocted and bear no relation to the law.”


Pilger added: “If this can happen to him, it can happen to any journalist. The warning will run through the veins of American journalism. Daniel Ellsberg [famous for leaking the Pentagon Papers in 1971] makes this point with authority. To many of us who have worked in the U.S. and now observe its descent into a state of perpetual war and criminalized protest, George Orwell’s truism comes to mind: You don’t have to live in a totalitarian state to experience totalitarianism.”

WikiLeaks shines light on what the 1% think.

We should use this moment to recommit ourselves to the struggle to defend WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, and that other brave individual Bradley Manning.
 
The Australian government must break from its sorry past – its refusal to assist citizens that the US has a special interest in persecuting – like David Hicks and Mamdouh Habib. It must speak up for Julian Assange – and demand his release from custody.
 
Blowing the whistle on war crimes is not a crime.
 
Free Julian Assange! Defend Wikileaks!

What the 1%'s propaganda doesn't tell you.

What happens to Julian Assange has great ramifications for us all. It is not only in his best interests that he is allowed to live his own life freely. If he can't then none of us can, because we will have fully moved into an Orwellian world of Newspeak, Doublethink and Thoughtcrime.

Julian introduces Imran Khan in Episode 9 of his show. Julian's guest had achieved fame captaining Pakistan's cricket team. Then he launched the Movement For Justice party. For the last two years, US drone strikes and political corruption have inflamed anger. So he's now likely to be his country's next leader.
