The film recounts the remarkable story of a 92-year-old Los Angeles woman's struggle to recover five Klimt paintings that were stolen from her family by the Nazi's in 1938. For nearly a decade, Maria Altmann and her lawyer, Randol Schoenberg, battled Austria for the return of these incredibly valuable paintings. The paintings were considered national treasures by Austria and were proudly displayed in Vienna's Belvedere Museum for over 60 years. Although it began as a legal dispute, the struggle quickly turned into a political, cultural and ethical confrontation. In the process, Austria was forced to re-examine not only its role in Nazi art thefts, but also its anti-Semitic past.

Marlene Dietrich was an iconic German-American actress and singer. Dietrich remained popular throughout her long career by continually re-inventing herself, professionally and characteristically. In the Berlin of the 1920s, she acted on the stage and in silent films. Her performance as Lola-Lola in The Blue Angel, directed by Josef von Sternberg, brought her international fame and provided her a contract with Paramount Pictures in the US. Hollywood films such as Shanghai Express and Desire capitalised on her glamour and exotic looks, cementing her stardom and making her one of the highest-paid actresses of the era. Dietrich became a US citizen in 1939, and throughout World War II she was a high-profile frontline entertainer. Although she still made occasional films in the post-war years, Dietrich spent most of the 1950s to the 1970s touring the world as a successful show performer. Dietrich classic roles were in Witness for the Prosecution, Destry Rides Again, Stage fright (Hitchcock) Foreign Affair, Judgement at Nuremberg, Touch of Evil (with Orson Welles) In 1999, the American Film Institute named Dietrich the ninth-greatest female star of all time.

The People Speak

This is a documentary that celebrates and encourages the influence seemingly powerless people can effect when they rally for their cause through the spoken word and its dramatic delivery. It is a thematic history of dissent and protest as captured by the words people have used when they felt the need to be heard. The form is simple: Fine actors take to a clean, leanly designed stage to delivery rousing monologues derived from letters, songs, poems, speeches and manifestoes. These short renditions (and selected songs of protest) are positioned within narrated contexts and set against archival footage and still images that reprise the heat of our nation's major social justice struggles. Jack Thompson, Claudia Karvan, Sam Worthington, Rebecca Gibney, Ryan Kwanten, Christine Anu and many others, revisit the "good fights" over our federation: gender equality, fair pay and working conditions, gay rights, war and peace, immigration, religion and the rights of our indigenous people.

Andy Warhol

Despite enormous commercial success, Warhol struggled to be respected as an artist. At one point his work was accused of killing art.

But we've since come to accept his work as an insightful expression of the tipping point when mass production and consumerism started to dominate the society we live in.

Gustav Klimt

When Gustav Klimt was born into a poor Viennese family of artisans in 1862, Europe was about to undergo epochal changes. At that time, Vienna more than any other European city embodied the life of a cosy society, which considered art primarily as the realisation of an innocent and harmless dream. The highly talented painter Klimt started his artistic career creating this harmless art, but later made his mark among other things as a co-founder of the Vienna Secession and vehemently resisted the commercialisation of art. In his documentary, Herbert Eisenschenk not only examines the colourful personality of Gustav Klimt, the historical artist, but also explores the tortuous paths of today's perception of his unique art.

Silver Screen Stars: Burt Lancaster

Burton Stephen 'Burt' Lancaster was an American film actor noted for his athletic physique, blue eyes and distinctive smile (which he called 'The Grin'). After initially building his career on "tough guy" roles Lancaster abandoned his "all-American" image in the late 1950s in favour of more complex and challenging roles, and came to be regarded as one of the best actors of his generation as a result. Lancaster was nominated four times for Academy Awards and won once-for his work in Elmer Gantry in 1960. He also won a Golden Globe for that performance and BAFTA Awards for The Birdman of Alcatraz (1962) and Atlantic City (1980). His production company, Hecht-Hill-Lancaster, was the most successful and innovative star-driven independent production company in Hollywood of the 1950s, making movies such as the Academy Award winning Marty (1955), Trapeze (1956), and Sweet Smell of Success (1957). Other classic films included The Professionals, From Here to Eternity, Run Silent Run Deep, Judgement at Nuremberg, Seven Days in May, The Leopard (Visconti) and British classic, Local Hero. In 1999, the American Film Institute named Lancaster 19th among the greatest male stars of all time.
