Generators is a mini-documentary series that has been created through a partnership between Creative Victoria and the Victorian College of the Arts.
The project saw VCA Film and Television graduates team up with artists who have received support through our VicArts Grants program to make short documentaries that go behind the scenes with artists and give an insight into their creative process.
Each week we’ll release a new film in the series and in partnership with Lido Cinemas, the films will be showing on the big screen ahead of all evening screenings throughout November and into the summer period.

In the second Generators film, filmmaker Eddie Diamandi captures HA LF, a performance by dancer Mariaa Randall. A Bandjalung woman, originally from the far north coast of NSW, Mariaa's performance scrutinises the lable ‘half-caste’ and the terms that perpetuate racial segregation based on skin tone, shade and colour.
