Flick Ford speaks with actor and festival ambassador for the Alliance Francaise French Film Festival, David Wenham. He gives his secret to an intense and memorable performance on screen PLUS his top picks for what to see at the festival which runs until 5 April here in Melbourne.

Then, independent producer/director of documentary films, Margie Ratliff joins Flick to discuss her role in SUBJECT (2022), a documentary revealing the experiences of having her life put under the microscope in the true-crime Netflix series, THE STAIRCASE, which documented her father’s legal battle after he was accused and convicted of the murder of her mother. PLUS they discuss an upcoming panel discussion featuring Ratliff titled THE DOCUMENTARY PARTICIPANT: AT WHAT COST? which asks how much we understand about those whose lives become stories in a documentary?
