Girls’ Own Stories

Scroll to content

This program includes four of Campion’s best short films largely made during her playful, provocative and truly exploratory early career. It includes her wonderfully strange and droll breakthrough film Passionless Moments (1983), a series of ten vignettes of superficially unremarkable suburban life; After Hours (1984), a Film Australia production about the investigation of a sexual harassment case; A Girl’s Own Story (1983), a wonderful semi-autobiographical depiction of three teenage girls growing up in the 60s; and The Water Diary (2006), a masterfully staged portrait of sustained drought in an outback community decimated by global warming.

All prints are courtesy of the National Film and Sound Archive, Australia.
