One of Australia's greatest photojournalists goes on a riveting first-hand journey through an Afghanistan never seen on the news. For almost 50 years, activist artist George Gittoes has stood on the frontlines of the world's most brutal conflicts and borne witness to the best and worst of humanity. Now living in Afghanistan's remote, Taliban-ruled Jalalabad province, Gittoes turns his attention to the lives of the children and outcasts of this war-torn land. He focuses on three gangs of children: the Ghostbusters, persecuted Kochi boys who hawk exorcisms of bad luck and demons; the Snow Monkeys, who sell ice-cream to support their families; and the Gangsters, a razor gang led by a nine-year-old antihero called Steel. With a deeply humane vision that won him the Sydney Peace Prize, Gittoes shows the unseen nature of Afghanistan's politics, culture and society, up close and startlingly personal.

Based on a true story that occurred in Florida during the 1920s, Rosewood traces the events leading up to an explosion of racial enmity between a middle-class, rural town populated almost exclusively by African-American families and a run-down neighbouring town populated by an Anglo-Saxon community. When an Anglo-Saxon woman falsely claims that she was assaulted by an African-American intruder, her entire town becomes a vigilante posse bent on destroying her peaceful neighbours. A shopkeeper, one of the only white residents of Rosewood, joins forces with a World War I veteran passing through town to engineer a courageous rescue of many of the terrified women and children who were forced to run for their lives. Rosewood stars Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight (Coming Home, Midnight Cowboy, Runaway Train); Ving Rhames (Con Air, Body Count, Dangerous Ground, Striptease, Mission: Impossible); and is directed by John Singleton (Boyz N the Hood), who was the first African American director to be nominated for an Academy Award.
