Sydneysiders will be able to welcome David and Margaret at Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace, Cremorne on Tuesday 28th February featuring a very special Q&A session with them following the film.
DAVID STRATTON: A CINEMATIC LIFE is an intimate journey with David Stratton, from his first boyhood cinema experience in England, 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.
Alongside David, this absorbing documentary includes commentary from some of the most recognisable names in Australian cinema including Gillian Armstrong, Eric Bana, Bryan Brown, Russell Crowe, Judy Davis, Nicole Kidman, George Miller, Sam Neill, Geoffrey Rush, Fred Schepisi, Warwick Thornton, Jacki Weaver and Hugo Weaving.
“The documentary provides insight to a side of David the Australian public haven’t seen before. The chance to have David attend these screenings and speak personally about his life is a privilege,” said Transmission Films Joint Managing Directors Richard Payten and Andrew Mackie.
