We've also posted one of the tougher scenes of Danny and his partner Leanne on vimeo [Contains strong language and themes]: http://vimeo.com/51836165
While documenting a production staged by a theatre company comprised of recently released offenders (Plan B), Amiel Courtin-Wilson was struck by the presence and natural story telling ability of Daniel P Jones whom he met on the day he was released from prison. Over a 5 year period a unique artistic collaboration evolved which found initial expression in the short film CICADA (selected to be screened in the prestigious directors fortnight program at Cannes Film Festival in 2009) which went on to win and be nominated for several major awards in Australia.
HAIL is the exciting necessary next step in this extremely fruitful creative relationship.
