Mystify: Michael Hutchence
A powerfully intimate and insightful portrait of the internationally renowned frontman. Deftly woven from an extraordinary archive of rich imagery, Michael’s private home movies and those of his lovers, friends, and family, the film delves beneath the public persona of the charismatic ‘Rock God’ and transports us through the looking glass to reveal a multifaceted, intensely sensitive and complex man.
For an all too brief time, we revel in Michael’s Dionysian beauty and sensuality on stage and off. We listen to the range of his extraordinary voice and witness the charmed way he travels through life as he is propelled to world acclaim.

The Dog Doc
A founding father of integrative veterinary medicine, Dr Marty Goldstein and his colleagues have created a mecca for holistic care, offering hope to scores of previously hopeless animals (and their owners). Combining conventional medical training with cutting edge alternative therapies, Dr Marty’s deeply empathetic philosophy offers a vital example of how improving overall health rather than merely treating disease is transformative for all living things.
As Goldstein and his staff interact with animals, the stakes are high and it is often touch-and-go as we watch the owners struggle with the reality of whether or not their pets will live to see another day. The Dog Doc poses a serious question about whether we are over medicating our pets, our children, and ourselves while offering an immersive view into a seldom-seen world to paint a complete picture of the dedication and joy of being a veterinarian.
