A Love Affair with Australian Cinema-
26 March 2017 | by tm-sheehanSee all my reviews

A superb homage to The Australian Film Industry and its history up till today. Who better to tell this story and his own life and involvement in it than our favourite film critic David Stratton..

I attended a Q&A session at Mt Vic Flix with Sally Aitken the producer and David Stratton and was so impressed by the quality of this documentary style film and it's affectionate and at times very moving treatment of a mans passion for his adopted country and the art of its cinema.

It made me and I'm sure other film buffs want to see some of Davids favourites like News Front, ,Wake in Fright and Careful He Might Hear You again , just to name a few. We heard there will also be a 3 part television series later this year to extend this enjoyable and informative movie that will include footage and clips not seen today

Lets hope our Australian film industry keeps making original films that are unique to our culture and that arts funding by what ever Government is in office continues and improves , so one day we may see movies to equal My Brilliant Career ,Picnic at Hanging Rock , Muriel's Wedding or another Shine.
