The Screen Guide

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