Set in the early 1950’s, director Phillip Noyce’s 1978 film follows the adventurous exploits of a plucky band of cinematographers willing to risk a range of dangers to capture gripping footage for the general public in the larger context of the sweeping cultural and political changes taking place in Australia. Starring Bill Hunter, Wendy Hughes, and Bryan Brown. Winner of the 1978 American Film Institute’s Best Actor (Bill Hunter), Best Director, Best Film, and Best Screenplay.
