“AN UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL STORY OF ELECTORAL POLITICS…WHERE TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION”
The Candidate follows Greens candidate Alex Bhathal over the final three weeks of her campaign to win a seat in the Australian federal parliament in 2018.
In this, her sixth attempt in fifteen years, and with a 1% margin between her and victory, she and her team have good reason to believe that history is finally on their side.
But this is no ordinary campaign…

Following the screening, join us for a no-holds-barred discussion with Helen Gaynor and Ian White.
