Our annual programme of shorts & films highlighting the life & work of our local legends of the built environment. The focus is on films about locals by locals and the perspective they offer us on who/what/why we are the way we are.


DADo Premiere

We are very excited to announce that the director Blue Lucine has generously offered to make a special cut of the documentary Forced Out for our screening of Local Legends. This special screening will be a 40mins slice of the full documentary.


Film: Forced Out

2017, Dir. Blue Lucine, 80mins.

On prized harbourside land in Sydney, a battle is raging. An entire precinct of public housing in one of Australia’s most historic areas is being sold off by the NSW state government. Tenants are being pushed out of homes they have lived in for years. Some are resigned to leave, but many say ‘no surrender!’ – they will not back down and believe they can win the fight to remain in Millers Point and the Sirius Building at Dawes Point.

Forced Out is an intimate character-driven documentary, taking you behind the headlines of the sale.
