Mad, Bad & Shaz: P.J. Hogan and Jocelyn Moorhouse in Conversation

From Queensland to Cannes, P.J. Hogan shot onto the world stage with a reputation as one of Australia's most fascinating filmmakers with Muriel's Wedding, continuing with large-scale comic crowdpleasers like My Best Friend's Wedding and Confessions of a Shopaholic. Join P.J., as well as his producer, wife and constant collaborator Jocelyn Moorhouse, in conversation with film critic Tom Ryan, as they talk everything from Muriel to Mental.

Mental is Hogan's highly anticipated new work, a working reunion with Toni Collette after 15 years, and MIFF's Closing Night selection for 2012.
