Marlin 2014 single work drama

'When a fisherman and his granddaughter head out on a fishing trip, their journey becomes a life and death adventure that neither of them had anticipated. Marlin is inspired by classic seafaring literature, and is set in the game fishing regions off Northern Queensland. Played in a sea of foam, Marlin explores the special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren, and asks what it really means to win.' (Production summary)

y separately published work icon The Modern International Dead Strawberry Hills : Currency Press , 2008 Z1530254 2008 single work drama

'Against a backdrop of miraculous visions and terrible repercussions in Rwanda, secret facilities in Iraq, landmines in Cambodia and political cleansing in East Timor comes the extraordinary stories of some very unique Australians setting out to bring relief and assistance to a troubled world. But when politics impedes progress, and reality shatters aspiration, the only consistency is compromise.

'So what keeps these individuals risking their lives and going back time and time again? And when duty is done, what does it actually mean to do good in the world?'
