SLIM & I (2020)
Directed by Kriv Stenders.

For over 50 years, country music legend Slim Dusty and his wife Joy McKean trail-blazed their way across Australia performing, writing and collecting songs of the bush and its people. They created a musical legacy that to this day continues to entertain and inspire, a catalogue of plain speaking yet profoundly insightful music documenting the rural Australian experience. Theirs is perhaps one of the greatest partnerships in Australian music history.

'Slim & I' is a feature documentary that tells the incredible story of that partnership and of the brilliant woman who lived beside, rather than behind, the legend. Australia’s own Queen of Country Music, Joy McKean.

Starring Travis Fimmel, Nicholas Hamilton, Richard Roxburgh, Luke Bracey, Daniel Webber, Myles Pollard, Anthony Hayes, Alexander England, Aaron Glenane and Lincoln Lewis. Directed by Kriv Stenders.

Late afternoon August 18, 1966 South Vietnam - for three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a 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, holding off an overwhelming enemy force of 2,500 battle hardened Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers. With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting and the enemy massing for a final assault each man begins to search for his own answer - and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honour, decency and courage.

The Battle of Long Tan is one of the most savage and decisive engagements in ANZAC history, earning both the United States and South Vietnamese Presidential Unit citations for gallantry along with many individual awards. But not before 18 Australians and more than 500 enemies are killed.

Alice set out to explore the beautiful beaches of Australia and along the way stumbled into Eagle's Nest, a sun-drenched remote coastal town, and fell in love with Jack, the wealthy owner of a local bar. Their marriage quickly deteriorated and when we pick up the story Alice is having an affair with a young surfer. Alice becomes the thread that binds three tales of murder, blackmail and revenge when Jack hires Charlie, a mercurial assassin. But there is more than one person gunning for Alice. An unexpected threat comes from the hands of Nathan, an unassuming dentist attempting to pay off his gambling debts through a risky life insurance scam, whilst a small town Lady Macbeth masterminds the scheme. A corrupt cop also tries to get his cut while Alice's love interest hopes to rescue the young woman from the assassin's telescopic sights.
