Q&A With: Rachel Griffiths and Deborah Mailman. Moderated by Rachel Glaister (EVP Press & Brands, All3Media International)

This screening includes all of Season 1 (Episodes 1-6).

Presented by Liberty Global and Fries Foundation
When Alex Irving (Deborah Mailman), a charismatic and contradictory Indigenous woman, is thrust into the national limelight after a horrific domestic violence event, Australia’s embattled Prime Minister Rachel Anderson (Rachel Griffiths), sees a publicity goldmine for her party. In a bold power play, she handpicks Alex for the Senate. But Alex wants to be more than just a political stunt: she wants to make a difference. So, when the Prime Minister's cynical calculations betray her, Alex sets out for revenge that will send the political establishment into meltdown. Total Control is a story of ambition, betrayal and treachery. It is about one woman, marginalized through the color of her skin, the desperate history of her people, her gender and her class, navigating her way to real power.
