Joan Robinson

Following a successful career as a writer and communications consultant in the finance industry, Joan Robinson has been producing, writing and directing documentaries for ten years.

Since then, Joan has produced, written and directed another six documentaries, including a short documentary shot in a remote East Timorese village and two documentaries commissioned by the Electrical Trades Union - Standing Together, which is a case study of an industrial dispute, and Hold the Line , which takes the viewer inside one of Australia's most powerful unions as it takes on the Australian Government's draconian industrial relations laws.
