The Screen Guide

PAULINE HANSON: Please Explain! tells the story of how Pauline Hanson, an uneducated fish and chip shop lady from Ipswich, divided Australia. Intercutting Hanson’s 2015-2016 “Fed Up” campaign for a federal Senate seat with her volatile political journey between 1996 and 2004, the film uses provocative 1990s archive, intimate access to Hanson and One Nation insiders, and incisive commentary from Indigenous, multicultural, political and media figures impacted by the "Hanson phenomenon” to present a balanced and revealing insight into Hanson’s unique political legacy – and how it has impacted on our identity as Australians today.
