Fragments

Australia, 1980 (MIFF 1980, Programme 55)

Director: Paul Davies, Robert Antoniades

"Fragments" is the story of Mick Georgiou, a 17 year old casualty of life in the industrial suburbs of Melbourne. Unable to cope with school, he leaves early, and after a brief stint of work, is soon on the dole. Bored and frustrated, he knocks off a car with a couple of mates, and is soon being hunted by the police. Neither his family, his girlfriend nor his other friends seem to understand. They offer instead, a sort of repressive tolerance. Mick rejects it all.
