You Can't Touch Me Now

Australia, 1985 (MIFF 1986)

Director: Rick Randall

A woman returns to a psychiatric institution. The building is in disrepair but painful memories remain intact: the journey must begin anew. This student film suffers from some weaknesses, notably some very banal dialogue but is impressive for its visual stylistics.,especially in the opening sequence.
