Rymer Childs announces the release of The Burnside Conversations through Ronin Films. This series contains extensions of the interviews Julian conducted for Border Politics.
The people in these interviews have dedicated much of their lives to the defence of democratic freedoms. They have much to share with you. We hope you will watch them, use them and share them!
These 16 short films are all about those most precious aspects of any discussion: the exchange of ideas and experiences with minimal constraint or mediation and with optimum passion.
These little gems forcefully examine fundamental aspects of human rights, and represent an incredibly valuable resource that extend and amplify and clarify everything that Border Politics began; they give space for extended thinking, in a way that our mainstream media rarely has time to permit.
