From deep within the engine room of politics comes this superb documentary on the ‘Donald Bradman’ of speech writing – Graham Freudenberg.

A powerful journey into one of the great minds of politics whose words shaped our fortunes. This untold perspective from someone at the epi-centre of the Australian government for nearly 50 years paints a remarkable picture of a political insider’s love of language and its power to change the country.

Finally, the scribe becomes the orator.

Don’t miss this Sydney Premiere screening ‘The Scribe’.
