TEDxSydney 2016 short film wrap-up

As part of the recent annual TEDxSydney event held at the Sydney Opera House, filmmakers were invited to make short videos for the day.

These videos are showcased below:

Film: Being a Robot Usher
A day in the day in the life of the newest employee at the Sydney Opera House.
Directed by Ian Williamson & Russ Tucker

Film: Do you see me?
For months, filmmaker, Jane Schneider had admired the work of Luke Atkinson on Instagram. His candid photos document the people he sees around the city – often solitary people, often elderly people. People you might walk past without even seeing. By connecting these images with interviews of children, this micro-doc challenges the way we see old people, particularly in public places, but also questions how we value old age itself.
