The Drummerer

Australia, 1985 (MIFF 1986)

Director: Ollis Martin

Gothic melodrama, which makes dramatic and economical use of empty frames overlapping sound and striking images to tell its story of a faith healer's attempt to detraumatise and restore the speech of a dumb young man. The results are sensational.
