PREVIEW SCREENING FOLLOWED BY PANEL DISCUSSION WITH DIRECTOR GARY NEWMAN AND SPECIAL GUESTS – MORE DETAILS TO COME
In 1976, when a student protest erupts into violence, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser is forced into a basement while his minders desperately hatch an escape plan. As the drama unfolds, the film prompts us to reflect on the fragility of democracy, the lifecycle of idealism, and the legacy of one of our most divisive Prime Ministers.
How to Capture a Prime Minister has been more than a decade in the making and features never-before-seen footage of former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser.
Join director Gary Newman and guests for this special preview screening hosted by the ANU Film Group ahead of the film’s official premiere. Find out more about the film at howtocaptureapm.com
