What Could Go Wrong? (AUS)

official selection

Join Triple J presenters Veronica and Lewis as they attempt to answer the age-old question of what could go wrong? -by revealing fifteen of Australia’s maddest, craziest, and excruciating real-life stories. In this innovative and experimental short form documentary series, tales of when things have gone horribly wrong are reimagined and reinterpreted in creative and unique ways. From genre mashups, puppetry, surreal animation, satire and miniature model sets each episode tells a story using a completely different and often absurd style. Veronica and Lewis bring their own experience and comedy as they attempt to unpack the stories in What Could Go Wrong and discuss what we can learn (or not learn) about Australian life.
