The last several years have seen a dramatic shift in the Australian terrorism landscape. Over 150 of our youth have left Australia to partake in hostilities overseas, coupled with unprecedented domestic terrorism attacks. Understanding the radicalisation phenomenon is the key to these events. Why have our young embarked on a journey leading to their almost certain death, while bringing harm to their families and the Australian community? What role does religion play? How do we make the shift from addressing symptoms, to finding a cure?Radical is an important documentary that seeks to answer these questions, untangling an often complex and sensitive topic. Radical explores the causes of religiously motivated terrorism via a number of experts and through the eyes of previously charged and convicted terrorists. The film seeks to find a more effective response to the Australian radicalisation phenomenon. Commentary is provided by leading religious leaders, academics, senior government law enforcement officials and ministers. These complex topics are navigated by the director, a former refugee from Iran and an admitted lawyer, supported by a team from the University of Sydney, Centre for International Security Studies.

Palazzo di Cozzo
Aged, Arts, Community, History
Aging patriarch, Franco Cozzo, holds court over an iconic furniture empire. A pioneer of Australian TV advertising, Franco’s tri-lingual catchphrase sparked a cult-of-personality as kitsch as his baroque bedheads. But his character is more than caricature. Propelled by ego and ambition, Franco’s journey from rural Sicily to the high streets of Melbourne is marked by fame, fortune and family drama. Discreetly, his furniture tells its own story, gracing the homes of an evolving aspirational migrant class. Charting Franco’s trajectory alongside the history of modern migration, PALAZZO DI COZZO explores the modest and majestic dreams of a man seeking to secure his legacy within multicultural Australia.
