In the late 1930s, Rupert Kathner and Alma Brooks began a movie-making spree that took on the Hollywood barons, a Police Commissioner and the cultural cringe, all in their passionate pursuit to make Australian films. On the run from police across thousands of miles, they would stop at almost nothing to get their films made. Written by chasm

Truly clever film making
26 October 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The film is a compelling story of a fascinating man but packs in lots of the atmosphere of the 1930s and 40s in Australia. This film shows what you can do with a clever mixture of modern recreations and archival footage that has come to light from digital archives. The director Alec Morgan and his cinematographer have done a great job bringing the people and photographs to life. One of the great effects was adding wings to the film business angels. It is really inspiring for other documentary makers who want to tackle historical issues. Ben Mendelsohn was the stand out performer but was supported well by the women who played his wife and lover.
