Sunday in Melbourne

Australia, 1958

Film
Sunday in Melbourne thumbnail image.

An experiment in the creative use of colour visuals, natural sound and dialogue commentary, this film shows the loneliness of the aimless wanderers in the city streets contrasted with those who have companionship on their Sunday. (Award: Special Award for an Experimental Film in the Australian Film Awards, Melbourne Film Festival, 1958) Rights held by Gil Brealey.
