WHERE: AFTRS, ACMI
Friday on My Mind at AFTRS Sydney, June 8: Craig Lahiff - Power, Politics & Justice
Be it a briefcase full of cash or a groundbreaking criminal case, Craig Lahiff knows the currency of a good story. The writer/producer/director received an AFI nomination for his crime-thriller Fever in 1988, before delving into the wrong side of the law again with Russell Crowe in Heaven's Burning in 1997. With the acclaimed Black & White (2002), Craig created a powerful dramatisation of a rape & murder trial that divided a nation followed up by a documentary Politics, Power, Justice and the Media: Controversies of the Stuart Case in 2010.
Recently Craig has returned to neo-noir with his latest crime thriller, Swerve a story of money, love and revenge. Craig will share his interest and experience in creating both drama and non-fiction stories about crime, politiics and justice.

Friday on My Mind at ACMI Melbourne, June 8: Robert Connolly - Fearless & distinctive filmmaking
The fiercely independent multi-award winning producer/director/writer Robert Connolly (The Boys, The Bank, Three Dollars, Romulus My Father, Balibo, The Slap) has established a reputation for tackling controversial social and political subject matter head on. That reputation is likely to escalate with his much anticipated telemovie currently in post-production: Underground The Julian Assange Story. Set in 1989 when Melbourne was, strangely, the centre of international computer hacking, Underground, follows the teenage Julian Assange as he and his friends break into computer systems around the world and it will be Robert's third creative collaboration with actor Anthony LaPaglia. Always inspiring and articulate, Robert will discuss his approach to fictionalising "breaking news" subjects; the creative shifts for a director of feature films moving into television and his extraordinarily symbiotic relationship with much-admired actor Anthony LaPaglia.
