Q&A with Director Phillip Noyce

Dead Calm is a 1989 Australian psychological thriller film based on the 1963 novel of the same name by Charles Williams. It was filmed around the Great Barrier Reef with cinematography by Dean Semler and a score composed by Graeme Revell. The plot focuses on a married couple (Nicole Kidman and Sam Neill) who are sailing a yacht through the Pacific. They encounter a damaged boat and a distraught man (Zane). Their efforts to help and investigate lead both the husband and wife into danger. This is the film that launched Nicole Kidman’s career. Director Phillip Noyce will take part in a discussion with the audience after the film.
