This Film is a Dog

Australia, 1996 (MIFF 1996, Fiction)

Director: Jonathan Ogilvie

Quinn Hudd is undoubtedly Australia s leading canine independent film director. Using an appro­priation of the diary documentary form This Film is a Dog follows Hudd through Cannes as he tries to secure a screening for his latest film a gnawing, apocolyptic vision called Fall Out. This short journey with Hudd offers a chance to see Fall Out for ourselves a remarkable existential work. Every dog will have its day hopefully Hudd will not be deterred (JS)
