What's Hollywood About You?

Australia, 1993 (MIFF 1993, Documentary)

Director: Jan Bruck

Sydney filmmaker and academic Jan Bruck spent seven days walking around Hollywood and other close L.A. suburbs — an extraordi­nary adventure in itself. In "an attempt to bring the image of Hollywood back to some tangible reality", Bruck also produced an extra­ordinary little home-movie document of the event, and some of the people he met along the way. His shooting style is — well — very indi­vidualistic. And what you hear may not not be what you see!
