LISTEN TO THE LION

Australia, 1977 (MIFF 1978)

Director: Henri Safran

A surrealist vision of life and afterlife on skid row...blending reality and fantasy into a powerful drama. Wyn Roberts plays Hunter, the down and out who embarks upon an odyssey through the subterranean world of the inner city to seek refuge and companionship, and finds the startling reality of his own destruction and the even more startling reality of his own re-creation.
