Late Winter to Early Spring

Australia, 1954 (MIFF 1957, Folks and Faraway)

Director: G. J. Brealey

A lyrical documentary set in the Fitzroy Gardens, Melbourne; basically an exercise in telling a story through pictures: no dialogue or commentary is used. The film presents a number of small caricatures of people who come to the Gardens. The brief story that surrounds each of them attempts to reflect the mood of the park in the passing age of Winter and the youthful beauty of the approaching Spring.
