However, this is still a block of flats and many other ordinary people still live there. How do they deal with these strange comings and goings?

A Public Kind of Privacy

Writer – Dougie Blaxland
Director – Ariella Eshed

Inspired by recent revelations of political sleaze at the highest level, A Public Kind of Privacy explores a rising politician's battle with her conscience and her former life.

Naively believing that she can “make a difference on the inside”, she accepts ministerial office within an administration which is morally bankrupt and near to collapse. What she discovers is a secretive and sinister world which places protocol and procedure before truth and ideology. She also comes to realise that strings have been pulled to get her where she is.
