Unique two-screen doco from Noyce in experimental mode
3 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

GOOD AFTERNOON is surely the most unique and ambitions film from Phil Noyce during his early pre-feature film period. While the word 'documentary' is accurate, it doesn't fully describe the innovation and vibe that Noyce captures with this film. Essentially a record of the 1971 Aquarius Arts Festival in Canberra, Noyce was funded by the Australian Union of Students to film this 8 day 'happening' at the Australian National University. Filming arts performances, musicians, artists, organisers, participants and protests, Noyce decided to frame the film as a two screen synchronised screening – one colour and one B&W, with sound moving between the frames as needed. He captures the vibe of flower-powered chaos brilliantly.
