Director Simon Ogston talks to us about his new documentary, Bill Direen: A Memory of Others, a portrait of its titular gentleman and the breadth of his talent and collaborators. Also serving as a love letter to the New Zealand landscape and to the dying art of creative collectivism, what made Ogston choose Direen for his latest deep dive into our country's musical underground? Sarah also weighs in to review the 2017 US indie Brigsby Bear. Encompassing her specialist subject of children's television and the always intriguing trope of simulated reality, what did she make of the VHS-era inspired flick?
