Inspired by the true events, Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan a nail-biting dramatic exploration of war illustrating heroism, mateship and the sacrifice of battle.
One late afternoon in 1966, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a Vietnamese rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives. They’re holding off an overwhelming enemy force of 2,500 battle-hardened Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers. This is their untold story.
The film features an A-list Australian cast including Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Luke Bracey (Point Break, Hacksaw Ridge), Daniel Webber (The Punisher, The Dirt) and Richard Roxburgh (Breath, Rake).
This revelatory concert movie features Aretha Franklin recording the most successful gospel album of all time, Amazing Grace, and is crafted from never-before-seen footage originally captured in 1972. Over two days in January of that year, Aretha Franklin got up to sing her heart out at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, backed by the Southern California Community Choir.
Join the prestigious Perth Symphonic Chorus and its renowned director Dr Margaret Pride for a wonderful concert of enchanting light repertoire. The program includes the flirtatious Liebeslieder Waltzes of Brahms, intoxicating Debussy choral songs, the best of Duke Ellington and an evocative new work Uluru by Perth’s own Rod Christian.

From shy country kid to two-time Brownlow medalist and Australian of the Year, Adam Goodes is an inspiration to many. The footy field was where he thrived – the only place where the colour of his skin was irrelevant. But Goodes’ world fell apart when he became the target of racial abuse during a game, which spiralled into public backlash against him. He spoke out about racism when Australia was not ready to hear the ugly truth, retiring quietly from AFL heartbroken.
Using the stunning athleticism of Goodes at the peak of his powers as well as the game itself as the film’s backdrop, The Australian Dream prompts questions about Australia’s relationship with racism and its ability to confront its own past.
