On Wednesday 28 November, John Pilger's film festival, The Power of the Documentary opens in Sydney, with 'Breaking the Silence' as its theme.

A collaboration between the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) and the Riverside Theatres, Parramatta, the festival presents 26 landmark documentaries selected by John Pilger, including a retrospective of his own work.

"At a time of information onslaught, much of it repetitive," says Pilger, "the documentary remains a powerful way of making sense of the world, of connecting the past with the present and breaking the silence that is so often truth."

The programme runs to 9 December and includes the long banned The War Game by Peter Watkins, Edward R. Murrow's Harvest of Shame and Peter DavisHearts and Minds.
