HJ will have its Australian Premier on Saturday November 19th, 2016 in Hobart at The Tasmanian EcoFilmFestival.

'Hadwin's Judgement' has finally been granted it's UK TV broadcast by Film4.  It will be on Channel 4 next Wednesday September 21st at 12.35am, very early in the morning, Tuesday night into Wednesday.  It will be on VoD for the week or so after.  For a film like this to make it to TV at all is a small miracle.

An unsettling story taken expertly from page to screen by documentarian Sasha Snow, Hadwin’s Judgement is a powerful account of a man’s desperate stand against an industry he once belonged to.
