BORDER cinema-goers can get up close and personal with the talent behind a new release this weekend.
Regent Cinemas Albury-Wodonga will host a Q&A with the star of I'm Wanita and the director Matthew Walker on Sunday.
I'm Wanita is Walker's first feature-documentary as a writer/director.
Before directing his own film, Walker had been an Australian film and television editor for more than 15 years with 30 feature and television credits.
In 2015 he directed a short film about Wanita called Heart of the Queen, which won Best Australian Short at the Antenna Documentary Festival.
He followed Wanita's story for the next five years, culminating in the film I'm Wanita.
