Topher Field is a leading Australian libertarian political commentator, human rights activist, and film-maker. Topher's documentary, "Battleground Melbourne has been selected as a finalist in many international film festivals this year alone and is a winner of the 'Libertarian Activist of the Year' award. After being introduced to film and TV as a child, Topher worked his way through the ranks as a camera operator and editor before studying acting, and then migrating to writing and directing. Along the way Topher became a well known Australian Political Commentator, but 12 years as a political commentator, Topher is now best known for his work since March 2020 when his home city of Melbourne began down the path to becoming the most locked down city on earth and descended into shocking scenes of police brutality and government oppression which have been seen around the world. Topher began speaking out at the first anti-lockdown protest in April 2020 with just 70 people in attendance, and is still fighting today and speaking at protests with in excess of 450,000 people. For his work standing up for basic human rights, Topher has been harrassed by police in his home, physically assaulted at protests, and finally arrested and charged by the Victorian Government with the trumped up charge of 'incitement', a charge intended for use against terrorist masterminds which is now being put to work against political commentators and human rights activists in Victoria. Topher describes himself as 'Pro Human, Pro Freedom, Pro Individualism', is best known for his videos and for his speeches at protests and now for the feature documentary Battleground Melbourne. Topher lives by the motto: "Good people break bad laws".
