Easter

Australia, 1986 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Geoff Clinton

A hellish vision or dream, which wanders through a collection of historical events, attitudes and outcomes. It compares the '1824' Wiradjuri Aboriginal massacre (in NSW) with a motorcycle carnival held each year on one of their sacred sites. The site is Mt Panorama in Bathurst NSW. The film makes use of an experimental expressionist style.
