A compelling personal journey with David Stratton, as he relates the fascinating development of our cinema history. David guides us from his boyhood cinema experience of Australia in England, where he saw the first images of this strange and exotic landscape via the medium of film, to his migration to Australia as a ‘ten pound pom’ in 1963 and onto his present day reflections on the iconic themes that run through our cinematic legacy. All of this reflects a passionate engagement in a uniquely Australian medium. Parallel and at the heart of the series is the story of an industry whose growing pains David has witnessed over a lifetime. Alongside David, the protagonists of this history are the giants of Australian cinema – both behind the camera and in front of it.

    Muriel’s wedding- “you’re terrible Muriel ” – “Waterloo” duet with Toni Collette and Rachel Griffiths –
    That smile of Muriel’s on her ‘wedding day’ and my fave…the beanbag scene!

    52 Tuesdays = the film achieves extraordinary intimacy in its wonderfully authentic characters as it tackles timely, and challenging themes, through a innovative cinematic framework that leads the film to an increasingly exciting and momentous crescendo. You leave the theatre with the glorious feeling of witnessing something truly substantial, like the weight of the film’s power on your shoulders.
