Opening night of 'My Brilliant Career'
While celebrating Margaret and David's 25-year career as Australia's leading film critics with 25 Years Talking Movies
, we take the opportunity to revisit the most celebrated era in Australian filmmaking.
Join David Stratton in conversation with acclaimed producers Jan Chapman and Matt Carroll and directors Phillip Noyce and Paul Cox as they revisit the Australian New Wave - the Renaissance period of the 1970s.
From Picnic at Hanging Rock
to Don's Party, Mad Max
to My Brilliant Career,
the Australian New Wave represented the most fertile and successful chapter in our film history to date.
David and his esteemed guests will discuss the work made during this time and the broader political and social climate, exploring the impact of film festivals and film schools on an industry that had lost its way.
