Teenage Babylon

Australia, 1989 (MIFF 1990)

Director: Graeme Wood

A haunting false documentary about teenage suicide in the 1960s. Using reconstructed black and white footage of police file photos of the period, accompanied by melancholy 60s love songs, the film pays tribute to Kenneth Anger's book Hollywood Babylon.
