Jill Bilcock: Dancing the Invisible
Iconic Australian films Strictly Ballroom, Muriel’s Wedding, Moulin Rouge!, Red Dog, and The Dressmaker bear the unmistakable look and sensibility of Bilcock’s visual inventiveness, but it was her brave editing choices in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo+Juliet that changed the look of cinema the world over, inspiring one Hollywood critic to dub her editing style as that of a “Russian serial killer on crack”.
With a back-story as colourful and surprising as her films, and featuring commentary from Cate Blanchett, Baz Luhrmann, Shekhar Kapur, Phil Noyce and Fred Schepisi, this documentary is a wonderful insight into the art of editing and the profound impact it has on storytelling.
Additional Q&A with special guest Jill BIlcock announced: Friday July 6, 6.45pm - cohosted by AACTA/AFI.
