Congratulations to Kitty Green and the small and talented crew of Ukraine is Not a Brothel. The film was nominated in all 6 AACTA documentary categories including our nominations for Best Sound and Best Score in a Documentary, and took home the top honours. Kitty was not able to attend the ceremony (more on that later) so producer Jonathan Auf de Heide, Zoë and I were there representing.

Another film featuring a collaboration between me and Kitty,  the short film "The Face of Ukraine: Casting Oksana Bouil", was awarded the Short Film Jury Award: Non-Fiction at Sundance Festival last week.  It was wonderful to have both films acknowledged, on opposite ends of the globe in the same week.

The Infinite Man v Zephyr Quartet

Our dear friends The Zephyr Quartet are turning 15, and to celebrate they are playing their greatest hits plus new commissions from some BFF composers at The Wheatsheaf Hotel in Adelaide tomorrow night, as part of the COMA series. Zoë has arranged an overture of excerpts from Zalumma Agra's The Infinite Man score for the occasion. Originally composed for an octet of strings, winds, cimbalon and a heck of a lot of timpani, it has been a lot of fun arranging it for the glorious medium of string quartet. Come join the celebrations tomorrow night, The Wheatsheaf Hotel, 8pm. Happy birthday Zephyr!
