In Universal Pictures’ Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele, when a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.

TIME TO DRAW THE LINE highlights the views of a diverse cross section of Australians on the vexed issue of maritime boundaries between Australia and its newest and smallest neighbour, Timor Leste.
Australia has negotiated permanent maritime boundaries with 5 different nations but it has yet to negotiate the last 1.8 percent - the boundary with Timor Leste. At issue is an area in the Timor Sea, rich in oil reserves. East Timor wants the boundary to be drawn at the median line, half way between the two countries. It sounds simple and fair - so why won't Australia agree?
The film combines contemporary anecdotes with an emotional search of Australia’s and Australians’ near century long connection to Timor Leste which reveals a chequered relationship of friendship and courage, mistrust and betrayal.
