DIRECTOR
WHAT WILL BECOME OF US (2019)
Starring Sir Frank Lowy. Directed by Steven Cantor.

Frank Lowy, founder of shopping centre giant Westfield, started with one Australian store and built it into a global billion dollar enterprise. Now in his late 80s and facing the prospect of a merger that will lead to his retirement, he reflects on his past and events that have moulded him into the fighter, philanthropist and survivor he is today.

Born in Czechoslovakia in 1930, Lowy survived the Holocaust, moved to Australia and built a close family and business empire. Revisiting the sites of his childhood and young adulthood, What Will Become Of Us takes us on an intimate journey of a man who seems to have it all but is keenly aware of the past and challenges of the future for himself and his wife. Lowy’s extraordinary life—from the ghettos of Budapest to living as a refugee in Palestine—is the story of his achievements despite all challenges.

DANCER (2016)
Starring Sergei Polunin, Jade Hale-Christofi, Galyna Polunina, Vladymyr Polunin, Valentino Zucchetti, Igor Zelensky, Galina Ivanovna, David Lachapelle, Larysa Lavrikova and Valia Polunina. Directed by Steven Cantor.

What happens when you walk away from being the embodiment of your profession? Ukrainian dancer Sergei Polunin took the dance world by storm as an astonishing prodigy, gifted with both power and poise, and became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principle performer. But his meteoric rise hid the pressures of his family, and of a childhood that was only work, no play. Teetering under enormous expectation and gazing into the abyss of self-destruction, at 25 Polunin turned his back on stardom and ballet.
