Sunkissed Goodbye

Australia, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Youth Film Festival)

Director: Nicholas Dunlop

Jonah Brack, the 21-year-old son of a wealthy family, seems to have it all. So why does he leave it all behind with a sunkissed goodbye? A French anthropologist comes to Australia to ask just this question. Seen through his eyes, the film is an outsider's attempt to understand Australia's beach culture and the demands of growing up in a supposedly ideal world.
