Summary
"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 the citizenry, but they don't vote for mayor, the 12 councillors do - and after three years of Larry, some of them are after his job. Filmmakers Bob Connolly and Robin Anderson gained extraordinary access to the councillors during the struggle for the mayoralty. Arms are twisted, favours called in, people are double-crossed, damaging stories are leaked to the media and deals are done. But right up to the vote, no one knows if the numbers will stick. It's a gripping real-life drama with a white-knuckle climax - a fascinating portrait of how politics really works, captured by two of Australia's most distinguished filmmakers. Winner - Most Outstanding Documentary - 1998 - TV Week Logie Awards; Winner - Best Documentary - 1997 - Film Critics Circle of Australia Awards; Critic's Choice - Best Documentary - 1996 - Sydney Film Festival; Audience Choice Best Documentary - 1996 - Melbourne International Film Festival, and Winner- Best Editing in a Non-Feature Film - 1996 - AFI (Australian Film Institute) Awards." -- website
