The Go-Betweens: Right Here Set For International Success

February 6, 2018: Essential Media is pleased to announce today the appointment UK based Moviehouse Entertainment to handle international sales of The Go-Betweens: Right Here feature documentary.

Award winning Director Kriv Stenders, known for his recent feature film Red Dog along with Killing Ground Producer Joe Weatherstone have together created a beautifully cinematic and intriguing look into the melodramatic rise and fall of one of the most artistically successful and influential Australian bands of the past 40 years.

The Go-Betweens: Right Here is a raw and fascinating trip down memory lane dubbed "an emotional, rolling thunder of a film" by Guardian reviewer, Padrig Collins.

Moviehouse Entertainment's Managing Director, Mark Vennis said “We saw The Go-Betweens: Right Here at the Melbourne International Film Festival and were completely blown away by this brilliant piece of documentary film making. The Go-Betweens’ story is every bit as engaging and riveting as the Band’s own music and in our view, a story any real music fan will love. It fits right in with many of our other music related documentaries including the current Here To Be Heard: The Story of the Slits.”

Executive Producer Chris Hilton said, “In this film you find a universal story of the exhilarating, unpredictable and precarious lives of musicians and the true price some pay to pursue their art. After being well received by the Australian public we are thrilled that Moviehouse Entertainment is now taking this film out world-wide.”

Needless to say we are very excited to see what's next for this brilliantly emotive film.
