Bookings are strongly recommended. Luke Carlon grew up taking tourists on horse trips along the Coxs River, a place his family has ridden since the 1820s. All that changed nearly 20 years ago when the river was declared a wilderness area, the business closed and Luke's father died. After a long history of difficult relations between the National Parks and the Carlons, National Parks Ranger Chris Banffy has a problem he thinks Luke might be able to solve. A wiley mob of brumbies inhabit the Burragorang Valley, a water catchment area sealed off for over 50 years. Classed as feral pests, Chris needs to remove the horses from Sydney's water supply without any of the outcry that has marred some previous control operations using shooters in helicopters. The only access to the trap-yards is either by helicopter or horseback. If Luke takes the job, he will have to find the horses, get them in the trap, and he'll have to break them in enough to lead them a bone crunching 5 km up to another set of yards with truck access. The film was recently awarded a prestigious Heritage award, the first ever awarded to a documentary. Watch the trailer here | Visit the official site

Omar is accustomed to dodging surveillance bullets to cross the separation wall to visit his secret love Nadia. But occupied Palestine knows neither simple love nor clear-cut war. On the other side of the wall, the sensitive young baker Omar becomes a freedom fighter who must face painful choices about life and manhood. When Omar is captured after a deadly act of resistance, he falls into a cat-and-mouse game with the military police. Suspicion and betrayal jeapordise his longtime trust with accomplices and childhood friends Amjad and Tarek, Nadia's militant brother. Omar's feelings quickly become as torn apart as the Palestinian landscape. But it's soon evident that everything he does is for his love of Nadia. Watch the trailer here
