1. Warwick Thornton's Darkside

Warwick Thornton's Darkside

The Darkside is his first feature-length film by award winning director Warwick Thornton since 2009’s Samson and Delilah. IT's a confronting, life-affirming headkick of a film - and it journeys into the dark side where ghosts aren’t imagined – they’re real. In 2011 Warwick and producer Kath Shelper put out a call through the ABC and the Indigenous media for contemporary Aboriginal ghost stories. But there was a catch. They had to have been experienced firsthand by the storyteller. Read more on Awaye Photo: Darkside Facebook page

Don't let someone you love suffer alone. The ABC's mental health week is helping to dispel the fear and stigma that persists about mental illness." http://www.abc.net.au/mentalas/

11. Searching for Sugar Man: Rodriguez in Australia

Searching for Sugar Man: Rodriguez in Australia

Detroit musician Rodriguez released two albums in the 1970s and they were embraced in South Africa and Australia, but not in the USA. By the early '80s, Rodriguez disappeared from the recording scene. It took a documentary-maker to 'find out' what happened to Rodriguez (amid rumours of his death), and the results have been stunning—sold out concerts in South Africa and now Australia, and the documentary Searching for Sugar Man was a 2013 Oscar winner. Maureen Cooney from RN's Music Show met Rodriguez backstage before his Melbourne concert and asked him whether he may record again for the first time in 40 years. Read more from Rodriguez.
