‘My Urrwai’, a deeply personal journey into the life stories, family and culture of Torres Strait Island dancer, comic, teacher, TV star and sometime guitarist, Ghenoa Gela.

‘PARTY (verb)’, a joyful celebration of halcyon party nights, revelry and togetherness from trailblazing performance artist and photographer William Yang accompanied by live music from DJs Stereogamous.

‘The Director’, charismatic ex-funeral director Scott Turnbull and artist and creator Lara Thoms disclose and demystify the macabre and sometimes playful elements of the ‘death industry’.
