Melbourne-made Documentaries featuring special guests Georgie Stone, Maya Newell, Lachlan Mcleod & Gus Berger

For this jam-packed program, we turned the spotlight on three fantastic Melbourne-made documentaries that we highly recommend you check out.  First up was ‘The Dreamlife of Georgie Stone’ which takes us into the world of Georgie, an Australian transgender teen, as she helps change laws, affirms her gender and finds her voice. Made in collaboration with Georgie herself, this is the story of a loving family who stood strong behind their daughter, offering an undeniable case for the agency of transgender children and teenagers to make their own decisions about their gender identity. The Dreamlife of Georgie Stone premieres on Netflix from September 22 and we were honoured to have Georgie and director Maya Newell on to speak with us about their incredible film.

Next up we spoke with Lachlan Mcleod, the director of ‘Clean’, which takes us into the world of trauma cleaning and follows Sandra Pankhurst and her team of ‘trauma cleaners’: those who scrub crime scenes, suicide sites and clear out hoarders’ homes. It’s also takes a look at Sandra’s incredible life and the role that trauma and resilience played in her life and how she lived her life honestly and authentically in every way including as a transgender woman.  Clean premiered at the 2022 Melbourne International Film Festival and is in cinemas now.

Our final guest was Gus Berger, the director of ‘The Lost City of Melbourne’, which delves in to the attempted ‘modernisation’ of Melbourne in the 1950s which destroyed much of the city, including its elegant cinemas and majestic theatres. Now, this brilliant documentary is bringing them back to life. ‘The Lost City of Melbourne’ had its world premiere screening at the 2022 Melbourne International Film Festival and is screening now across Melbourne at many of our favourite local independent cinemas.
