The Must See Film Before The Election

The Must See Film Before The Election

The eagerly anticipated TIME TO GO JOHN – Australia’s answer to Fahrenheit 9/11 - will be released nationwide on Wednesday 29 September.

TIME TO GO JOHN is billed as the film that encourages you to think very carefully before you cast your important vote. This 90 minutes compilation of short documentaries, animations and political satires canvasses issues Howard wants to bury.

Many conservative voters are currently not happy with Howard because according to them Howard has hijacked the Liberal agenda and moved the party too far to the right.

What Howard is doing has nothing to do with Liberal politics as Menzies conceived them, Julian Burnside QC says.

Former National Liberal President, John Valder - the current Convenor of the Not Happy John Campaign - thinks Howard should step down and ...get the blemish out of the Liberals.

TIME TO GO JOHN looks at truth in government; Howard’s lies and lust for absolute power; disenchanted Liberals; Aboriginal reconciliation; asylum seekers; Iraq; East Timor; the price of beer; and what it means to be an Australian.

The film is made by some of Australia’s best know filmmakers in less than seven weeks with no budget, no production company, no catering but with unrelenting enthusiasm, humour and determination. It is presented by comedian Rod Quantock.

An unprecedented 50 public screenings across Australia has been booked between 29 September and 7 October - in venues ranging from art house cinemas - to pubs, clubs and community halls. Many ordinary Australians will also be holding house party to show the film especially in towns in marginal seats from Townsville to Waurnponds and Burnie to Darwin.
