Based in the worlds of art and academia, Melita Rowston’s Between the Streetlight and the Moon explores Australia’s fraught relationship with the cultural centres of London and Paris. The piece unearths wider themes of creativity, love, failure and how artists’ thoughts make or break their practice. It also questions why most of us settle for the streetlight instead of aiming for the moon.

Written & Directed by John Michael McDonagh, War on Everything follows corrupt cops Terry Monroe (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bob Bolaño (Michael Peña) as they break the law for a living in New Mexico.
