CAST
RIDE LIKE A GIRL (2019)
Starring Teresa Palmer, Sam Neill, Sullivan Stapleton, Genevieve Morris, Stevie Payne, Gryffin Morrison, Summer North, Brooke Satchwell, Sophia Forrest and Anneliese Apps. Directed by Rachel Griffiths.

As a little girl, Michelle Payne dreams of the impossible: winning the Melbourne Cup — horse-racing's toughest two-mile race. The youngest of 10 children, Michelle is raised by single father Paddy. She leaves school at 15 to become a jockey and after early failures she finds her feet, but a family tragedy, followed by her own near fatal horse fall all but ends the dream. But with the love of her dad and her brother Stevie, Michelle will not give up. Against all the medical advice, and the protests of her siblings, she rides on, and meets the Prince of Penzance. Together they overcome impossible odds for a shot at the dream: a ride in the 2015 Melbourne Cup, at odds of 100 to 1. The rest is history.

WHAT IF IT WORKS? (2017)
Starring Luke Ford, Anna Samson, Kaarin Fairfax, Wade Briggs and Brooke Satchwell. Directed by Romi Trower.

Adrian, an irrepressibly chirpy tech nerd, suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Grace, a beautiful street artist, suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder (aka Multiple Personality Disorder).

In their own way, each is trapped. As new neighbours, in an edgy, graffitied suburb of Melbourne, they find themselves in therapy with the same psychiatrist and crash into each other one afternoon.

Grace has a promiscuous "alter" who engages in damaging sex - and that is the extent of her physical experience. Adrian had a high school girlfriend a decade earlier, whom he never got over, and that is the extent of his physical experience. And as if that’s not enough, Adrian’s ex, Melinda re-enters Adrian’s life, only to cause more confusion.

As Adrian becomes aware of a threat to Grace lurking in the form of a fellow street artist named ‘Sledgehammer’, he knows he should help Grace.

But he struggles to break free of his OCD in order to do so. Will he overcome his biggest fear? Will he sacrifice the object he loves most? What if Adrian forgot his illness for a spilt second because of his love for Grace?
