Lisa Nishimura Zoomed into the Australian International Documentary Conference from Los Angeles with the keys to a realm rich with possibilities. She is the Vice-President of Original Documentary, and Original and Independent Films at Netflix appearing in a session called Nishimura: Breaking the Mould.
As an emissary to the outer world, Nishimura walks a delicate line, being open to answers but limited by secrets. She was in conversation with Que Minh Luu, the Director of Content for Netflix ANZ and a former Executive Producer, Drama, Comedy and Indigenous at the ABC with a solid understanding of our national sector. Que has recently commissioned the first Netflix Original Australian documentary, Micro Worlds: Reef through Wild Pacific Media and BioQuest Studios.
