|The Naked Bunyip|
In his first feature film, Graeme Blundell stars as an innocent young market researcher assigned to report on sex. In this raucous documentary he gets up close and personal - but too personal in fact for the censors of the time who demanded cuts to the film.
Rather than remove the offending footage, however, Murray instead inserted bunyip caricatures and bleeps over the objectionable segments, infuriating the censors but making a bold statement about censorship.
With a guest appearance by Barry Humphries (amongst many other prominent Australians) The Naked Bunyip
helped to revive the Australian film industry. Followed by a panel discussion hosted by the Australian Film Critics Association.
