Alliance Française (22 Oct.): Red Obsession screening – Wine Tasting

On Wednesday 22 October, the Alliance Française de Sydney organizes a special event with a screening of the documentary followed by a wine tasting organized by Langton’s, Vintec and La Commanderie de Bordeaux, in the presence of Warwick Ross (Director/Producer),  Andrew Caillard(Associate producer), and  Robert Coe (Executive producer).


Documentary narrated by Russell Crowe
Directed by David Roach, Warwick Ross

Red obsession is a multi award winning Australian feature documentary film screened at The Berlin Film Festival, Tribecca Film Festival (New York) and it won the Australian Academy Awards (AACTAs) for ‘Best Feature Length Documentary’ and ‘Best Direction in a Documentary’.

For over three centuries Bordeaux has commanded an almost mythical status in the world of wine as a symbol of wealth, power and influence. But recently prices for the prestige red wines have been skyrocketing. Something unprecedented is happening to the Bordeaux fine wine market and that something is China.

Red Obsession sets out to explore the Bordeaux phenomenon. Just how good can really good wine be? What compels a cashed up industrialist to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for a single bottle? Is it taste, prestige or investment that is driving the demand for the wines of Bordeaux? Or is it simply the need to own something ethereal, unworldly and limited?

Red Obsession is a story of aspiration for greatness. It is also a study of power and passion in high places and the economic power shift from West to East.
