COUCHED 2020: SHORT FILM DOCUMENTARY SHOWCASE: REAL WORLDS UNFOLDING We love short documentary, and this year we received some crackers from the four corners of the globe. From animated documentary to lovely personal fly on the wall observations, this fantastic collection is guaranteed to satisfy film lovers of all persuations! Include works by A Safe Space For All - Documentary and Marhaba Films - Charby Ibrahim. Stream these today: revcouched.eventive.org Bright Lights: The Perils of the Pokies Dir: Charby Ibrahim / Australia / 2019 / 13mins Sharon’ (63) has been addicted to poker machine gambling since they first arrived in Australia in 1992. Through this fully animated documentary film, she takes stock of the devastating costs. Told in the first person, Sharon’s story culminates with an incident that pushed her over the edge; an encounter with her 7 year old daughter, and her precious piggy-bank. Sharon’s cautionary tale is unique in that it is comprised of several real life stories (taken verbatim), and amalgamated into a single narrative that speaks to a universal, yet personal experience, as voiced by Claudia Karvan. The Kimberley Man Dir: Jeremy Thomson / Australia / 2019 / 26mins Filmmaker Jeremy Thomson goes on a journey to discover more about his fascinating grandfather, Indigenous Politician Ernie Bridge, a man who transformed tribulation into triumph giving the Aboriginal people of the Kimberley an unprecedented voice in Western politics. A Safe Space For All Dir: Shannon Taylor / Australia / 2020 / 8mins The film focuses on 4 members of the LGBTQIA+ community in Perth as they reflect on their experiences and discuss why queer safe spaces mean so much to queer individuals and society. Silver Lining Dir: Ran Li / Australia / 2019 / 20mins Lingyun Liao, a 60-year-old Chinese immigrant, always makes some tiny little marks in her home. For example, she will put a piece of her white hair on the cabinet to see whether the position of that hair will change while she is going out. If the position changes, she will consider her house has been broke-in. She has a very serious state of paranoia. Furthermore, Lingyun wants to tell everybody about her miserable life.
