The Life of Harry Dare M
The life of a shambolic criminal investigator from Adelaide.
Harry Dare (John Moore) is a shambolic Adelaide private investigator. He's still not certain why he's in the business; perhaps to understand his father's disappearance, 20 years earlier. But now Harry's got a real case: who stole his father's old Kombi van, nicked (oddly) just after Harry finished restoring it? Director Aleksi Vellis' detective yarn both delights in the idea of a Kaurna Aboriginal man making ends meet as a private eye, and in how Harry's crime-solving smarts seem to grow directly from his resilience as an Indigenous Australian.

Director Aleksi Vellis | Script Gerald Thompson | Cast John Moore, Nicholas Hope, Tommy Lewis
Aleksi Vellis studied English Literature, Classics and Drama at Melbourne University before completing the 3 year Film Directing course at the Victorian College Of The Arts in Melbourne Australia with first class honors. Nirvana Street Murder, his gritty low-budget first feature, was a critical and commercial success, winning awards both in Australia and overseas. Aleksi's third feature film, The Wogboy, a fast-paced mainstream comedy, is one of the five highest grossing Australian films of all time. Aleksi also runs a specialized film acting studio, The Film Space, and has directed music videos, documentaries, television series and commercials. From the potent tragedy of the "Twelve Days of Christmas" campaign for the Transport Accident Commission (a Gold winner at New York's prestigious One Show) to the slick and precise wackiness of his "Specialist" spot for Pepsi, Aleksi's work is distinguished by his ability to work with both dramatic and comic material and his ability to inspire top level performances from actors.
