Paddington lace

Australia, 1970

Film
Paddington lace thumbnail image.

Paddington is one of Sydney’s oldest suburbs, which has developed somewhat along the lines of New York’s Greenwich Village or London’s Chelsea and has become Sydney’s artist colony. This is a fully dramatised film, which captures the essence of Paddington, not only by striking visuals of the Old-Sydney architecture in the area, but by re-enacting the mood and lifestyle of some typical, bohemian inhabitants. Scripted by Joan Long. Music by Grahame Bond and Rory O’Donaghue. Starring Ross Thompson, Janne Wesley and Ron Blanchard.
