The GOD PARTICLE - TV SERIES AUSTRALIA

The God Particle is a sophisticated comedy about doing good deeds in a bad world based on real life Melbourne maverick priest, Father Joe Giaccobe.

If we’re all made in God’s image, then God has no morality. Father Joe Giaccobe is God's faithful worker – priest, businessman, gambler, philanthropist, and consummate networker. He rakes in millions through his pokies and racing ventures to fund DOXA, a foundation for disadvantaged youth. Father Joe is the go to priest of the mob, baptiser of the bookmaker, confessor to the star politician and football player, best friend to the womanising jockey. Joe's worldly ‘connections’ are his Holy Spirit. Nothing sticks to this freelance priest. Father Joe is God’s pure particle, moving effortlessly from one contrasting world to the next. Witness to everyone’s sins, he’s owed alot. A bank of favours in a black suit, Father Joe’s determined to apply his morally questionable connections to achieve his life’s legacy.

the reef - feature film australia/uk

A family – a mother, two mismatched siblings, 14-year-old Mitja and his shy older brother, Aleksi – drive to a campground. They carry an indescribably great sorrow with them. They intend to stop briefly, but fate intervenes: their car breaks down. The days merge and become indistinct. Aleksi, deeply antisocial, hides away to watch movies in constant stream. Mitja, on the other hand, seeks adventure. He encounters a girl in a white dress who lives in the ruins of a grand old abandoned hotel, and falls deeply in love. As he pursues the girl, he discovers a group of boys living on the shore; each named after a shipwreck. He soon forges friendships with the wrecks, learning to stand up for his views and take responsibility for his decisions. Gradually, the revelation of what is really taking place begins to surface as the wrecks come closer to their final departure and Mitja and Aleksi must face their own reckoning with the tragic event that led them to this beach hideaway. 

The Reef is about accepting death and letting go. Based on the book ‘Karikko’ by Finnish writer Seita Vuorela, it is a multifaceted, timeless story about the bond between two brothers, opposites in every way, but without limit to the depth of their love for one another.
