The Triangle Wars
In May 2007, a $300 million retail and entertainment plaza was proposed for the triangle of crown land adjacent to the Palais Theatre on the foreshore of St Kilda, Melbourne. Multifarious elements in the local community soon united to oppose it. Kiwi filmmaker Rosie Jones followed the three-year battle of willpower and wits that ensued. The clash is a classic one, the stuff of The Castle and countless Citizens vs City Hall dramas. Populated with a colourful array of obligingly forthright players on both sides of the barricades, The Triangle Wars is a vivid, informative encapsulation of a vital struggle taking place in countless Western cities.
