Documentary Film Screening "Rats in the Ranks" + Q&A with Bob Connolly

Classic suspense … Machiavellian … the stuff of Shakespeare…       Variety

Watch David and Margaret agreeing (!) on 5 stars: https://www.sbs.com.au/movies/movie/rats-ranks

SYNOPSIS: Ambition, courage, envy, betrayal, disaster, triumph ... in other words a classic study of politics. 

Every September Sydney’s Leichhardt Council elects its mayor. Incumbent Larry Hand is popular with the citizenry but they don’t vote for mayor, the 12 councillors do - and after three years of Larry, some of them are after his job. And politics is a bruising business - the best policies in the world mean nothing unless you’ve got the numbers. Rats in the Ranks takes a close, behind-locked-doors look at how politicians get the numbers.

Filmmakers Bob Connolly and Robin Anderson gained extraordinary access to the councillors during the struggle for the mayoralty. Arms are twisted, favours called in, people are doublecrossed, damaging stories leaked to the media and deals are done. But right up to the vote, no one knows if the numbers will stick.

It’s a gripping real-life drama with a white knuckle climax - a fascinating portrait of how politics really works, captured by two of Australia’s most distinguished filmmakers.

If Christianity is true, then prayer is the most incredible privilege. Our conversations with God get to shape the course of human history and destiny. Of course we all pray individually. But there is something uniquely powerful when a community of people gather to worship and pray together. So come. Join us. We get to work with God to change the world!
