Crack in the Curtains

Australia, 1989 (MIFF 1989)

Director: Jinks Dulhunty

A peeping-Torn gets more than he has bargained for when the students of an elite girls boarding school decide to chase a few vicarious thrills of their own.

Originally 25 minutes in length, the ftiin svas subsequently re-cut for consideration by the Cannes Film Festival. The resultant tightening has led to a taut, wicked comedy with an unexpected sting in its tail.
