The Celluloid Heroes

 

Original score by Nigel Westlake

 

1995 Winner Australian Guild of Screen Composers Awards for Best Music

This fascinating documentary series details the evolution of Australian cinema from the early Silent Film era

to the modern renaissance in Oz film making when names like Peter Weir, Mel Gibson and Nicole Kidman became World Cinema icons.

From the early 20th century home-grown heroes like Chips Rafferty and Errol Flynn helped forge a genuine Aussie film image independent of Hollywood.

Though the industry ground to a halt in the post-war years, it was spectacularly resurrected in the 70s

through films like Picnic at Hanging Rock, My Brilliant Career and Gallipoli.

Beautifully produced, extensively researched, and narrated by Bryan Brown,

The Celluloid Heroes is an unparalleled showcase of Australian film history.


Produced by Film Australia.

Directed by Robert Francis.
