Wireless Nights

Australia, 1991 (MIFF 1992, Documentary)

Director: Melissa Juhanson

Wireless Nights centres around a variety of char­acters who listen to talk back radio from 12am to 5am. Following the announcer's voice through the early morning, this drxumentary introduces the viewer to the private arena of people who both ring and listen to talk back radio. Each night they tune their radios to the voice that will carry them through till tomorrow.
