Friday May 18: Sally Ingleton – Documentary Filmmaker – candid and compelling

How can anyone possibly say that the best stories come from the imagination when so often it’s real life!

Sally Ingleton has been writing, directing and producing award-winning documentaries for more than 25 years, creating illuminating programs, which have been praised and enjoyed worldwide.

Sally has used undercover surveillance to record the intriguing habits of some of our most protected species; exposed a critical quest to locate and preserve ancient seeds to save our food from the impact of global warming and provided a shocking account of a perilous journey in the life of Tibetan refugees as they attempted to escape to Nepal for freedom.

02.4.2012Inside Film magazine interviews director Alex Kelly

2020-02-27T18:56:52+10:0002.4.2012|News|

Inside Film magazine (IF) interviews director of Queen of the Desert, Alex Kelly.

Director Alex Kelly is always on the lookout for interesting, intercultural projects. Now, with some financial help from Screen Australia, Screen Territory and ABC TV, Queen of the Desert, Kelly’s most recent project for 360 Degree Films is heading to television.

Queen of the Desert follows a youth worker named Starlady who travels to Areyonga, an indigenous community in Central Australia in the hopes of using her hairdressing skills to help the people there.

“Starlady is an amazing character, full of wit, cheekiness and integrity”, says Kelly. “I visited a community in Western Australia where she had helped Wilurrara Creative set up a salon and was struck by the power of the program and immediately saw a film in my mind – it is such a colourful, playful and visual program.”
