Dogs in Space
Writer/director Richard Lowenstein navigates the world of drugs, dropouts and punk music in late 1970s inner-suburban Melbourne.

Set in a share-house occupied by a collection of social misfits, the film focuses on the tumultuous affair between vivacious Anna (Saskia Post) and drug-taking Sam (Michael Hutchence), front man for the band 'Dogs in Space'.

With the aid of cinematographer Andrew de Groot's invaluable camerawork, Lowenstein achieves an intense, fluid evocation of a squalid, destructive lifestyle. Features a sensational pounding soundtrack courtesy of Iggy Pop, Boys Next Door (aka Birthday Party), Brian Eno and Gang of Four.
