LISTEN > Droh Moreh – Director – The Gatekeepers

The Gatekeepers

Since its inception, the Israeli Film Festival has continued to grow and this year, it presents one of the strongest programs to date. Expanding to additional venues in Melbourne, Canberra and Byron Bay, the IFF is the only Australia-wide showcase for Israeli film and one of the standouts this year is The Gatekeepers, which is about the Six Day War and the role played by six former heads of Israeli’s secret intel security service.

The Gatekeepers has been nominated for an Academy Award and is one of the most talked about films/docos. Caitlin Gibson chats to director Droh Moreh about this extraordinary and controversial documentary.

[From Drawing Dicks on the Herald Sun - Facebook page]

How many times can you say “dick” on radio? If there’s a world record out there, we may have smashed it with this interview.

Drawing Dicks on the Herald Sun is a Facebook page that has become a phenomenon: since launching in September 2012 it now has over 200,000 fans, and a documentary in production. Artists and absent-minded doodlers alike share their improvements on daily news photos, adding a very tongue in cheek form of commentary to the news.

We spoke to Larry Boxhall, director of the documentary, on his plans for telling this story of a little Facebook page that has managed to capture imaginations all over the world.
