Storyline

In the late 1950s Brisbane, anonymous poems began showing up in a Brisbane cafe causing quite a stir. Some fifty years on, renowned Australian poet, Rupert McCall sheds some light on this mysterious figure known only as The Brisbane Bard. Sometimes the fact gets tangled up with the fiction as Rupert uncovers about a time now gone, of loss and of how carefully we consider exactly what it is that we love about the cities we live in.

Interesting film focusing on oral histories
20 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

This little film is filled with the unexpected. An unknown story from Brisbane's recent past comes to life through the stories of those who were there, and with those stories an idea of what Brisbane was like in the late 50's also comes to light. Using a mix of archival footage and photographs, and the stories as they are told by the people who knew Brisbane at that time, and who knew the Brisbane bard, or at least claim they did, the story comes to life. Rupert McCall, a Brisbane based poet, is the narrator who takes us on a journey through his memories of Brisbane and those of his family, all along the path to discovering who the Brisbane Bard was. Very enjoyable in a nostalgic kind of way
