Australian Writers' Guild rewards non English-language features
Cate Shortland and Robin Mukherjee, writers of last year’s “Lore,” were winners of the best adapted screenplay.
The two films are both presented in languages other than English; “The Rocket,” (pictured) mostly in Lao, and “Lore” in German – and both were selected as Australia’s foreign-language Oscar contenders, in 2013 and 2012 respectively.
“Red Obsession,” a documentary about China’s growing role in the world wine business, written by David Roach and Warwick Ross, earned the AWGIE for best public broadcast documentary screenplay.
Best TV mini-series was “Underbelly.” Robert Connolly’s “Underground: The Julian Assange Story” was named as best telemovie adaptation.
