The Echo Doco - Born To Be Trouble
The compelling story of the freethinkers who gave a unique community its voice.
'Two stories are interwoven in award winning filmmaker Sharon Shostak’s affectionate and compelling documentary celebrating the Echo’s twenty-fifth anniversary. One is of the paper’s evolution and of how it has established and maintained such a loyal if fractious readership. The other, more emotionally charged thread deals with its much loved and still missed co-founder, the charismatic Nicholas Shand who, with David Lovejoy, created an outlet for the vociferous community it serves. Shostak’s non-linear but astute and breezy edit combines a wealth of archival footage of the paper’s grass roots genesis with candid, touching interviews, giving vitality and meaning to the present through a loving regard for the past.' John Campbell
