The Year My Voice Broke
Duigan's tough, quirky and often raw exploration of a rights-of-passage tale features shining performances from Noah Taylor, Loene Carmen and Ben Mendelsohn.

Duigan's greatest strength is that he never condescends to his characters' emotions; adolescence is a poetic season, a time of excess when feelings run out of control - a mood intensified by the constraints of the small town setting surrounded by the ravishingly stark Southern Tablelands of New South Wales.

Winner of Best Film, Best Direction, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (for Ben Mendelsohn) at the AFI Awards in 1987.
