Q&A with Director Phillip Noycee

In post war Australia the men and women of Cinetone struggle to produce the weekly news reels for the movie going public. Set between the years 1948 and 1956, when television was introduced to Australia, the film tracks the destinies of two brothers, their adventures and misadventures placed in the context of sweeping social and political changes in their native Australia as well as natural disasters. Director Phillip Noyce will take part in a discussion with the audience after the film and at a post-screening party.
