Lipstick

Australia, 1993 (MIFF 1994, Documentary)

Director: Harriet McKern

Australian women speak out: all you've ever wanted to know about red lipstick, and more. A fast, snappy 'microdoc' that moves between the tongue-in-cheek, the inside story, and good ol' exotic Vogue-shaped red lips. Eyecatching images and great soundtrack.
