Screenings showcase local works

The November Movies and More screening will be held on Sunday November 8 from 4pm and will screen two documentaries made by local filmmakers, with the hinterland town of Maleny featuring as the subject of both.

A Peace of Green -- Cornerstone of a Community will screen at 4pm. Jill Morris wrote, directed and produced this documentary which traces the history an 80 yearold building in Maleny, which over the years has had 13 different uses, meeting the changing needs of a hard-working community. The film uses original art and music to step through eight decades, interweaving narrative with interviews and quirky drama segments, with crisis moments in the building's battle against the constant threat of demolition.

Reconstructing Peter will screen at 5.15pm. The documentary, by Jessica Begun, looks at the motivation of local filmmaker Peter Storm Erdmann, who has captured 30 years and over 700 hours of the social history of Maleny with his video recorder.  The film traces Peter's amazing childhood in Shanghai under Japanese occupation and Communist rule until he was able to immigrate to Australia in 1959. Peter's father, who died when Peter was only two, was a German film director in 1920s Berlin and his mother was a Hollywood film star. All this adds up to an intriguing story about an extraordinary 83 year-old man and an exceptional community with a heartwarming conclusion. The documentary has been selected to be added to the collection of films at the National Film Archives in Canberra and will be screened at the 2009 Woodford Folk Festival.
