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

Rupe and Alma were partners in crime...the crime of making movies
3 July 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The film is based on the true story of two Sydney filmmakers Rupe Kathner and Alma Brooks who in the late 1930s took on the Hollywood barons, a corrupt police commissioner and hostile press in their wild spree to make their movies. This was during a dark time when Hollywood ruthlessly dominated the Australian film industry. Its kind of an Aussie Bonnie and Clyde meet Ed Wood. Many of their actual films have survived and are also in the film. There is something crazy and exhilarating about their attempts to make their movies and the passion with which they would stop at almost nothing to get them finished and on the screen.Now their story is told using digital innovations that incorporate real actors into photographs and archival footage of the times, all in stunning black and white.
