On 28 November, John Pilger's film festival, 'The Power of the Documentary' opens in Sydney. A collaboration between the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) and the Riverside Theatres, Parramatta, the festival presents 26 landmark documentaries selected by John Pilger, including a retrospective of his own work.

'At a time of information onslaught, much of it repetitive,' says Pilger, 'the documentary remains a powerful way of making sense of the world, of connecting the past with the present and breaking the silence that is so often truth.'

The programme runs to 9 December and includes the long banned 'War Game' by Peter Watkins, Edward Murrow's 'Harvest of Shame' and Peter Davis's 'Hearts and Minds'.
