RIGHT HERE is the deeply moving, richly intimate documentary, directed by Kriv Stenders (Boxing Day, Red Dog, Lucky Country, Red Dog: True Blue, TV’s The Principal). It tells the fascinating story of this seminal band from the inside out, uncovering the betrayals, the failures, and the quiet triumphs that made The Go-Betweens so great. A must for both hardcore fans and absolute beginners, The Go-Betweens: Right Here is a musical journey like no other.
Did you know: Robert Forster, guitarist and lyricist from the band is a past Brisbane Grammar School student!

THE FINAL YEAR is a unique insiders’ account of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy team during their last year in office. Featuring unprecedented access inside the White House and State Department, THE FINAL YEAR offers an uncompromising view of the inner workings of the Obama Administration as they prepare to leave power after eight years.
