The Candidate is a feature length observational documentary that follows Greens candidate Alex Bhathal over the final three weeks of her campaign to win a seat in the Australian Federal parliament. In this, her sixth  attempt, and  with a 1% margin between her and  victory, she and her team have good reason to believe that  history is finally on their side. But this is no ordinary campaign…
An up close and personal story of electoral politics… where truth is stranger than fiction
"Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others." Winston S. Churchill
