The Last New Wave: Celebrating the Australian Film Revival
Film Society of Lincoln Center
Time: none - none
Responsible for launching the careers of a fiercely talented generation of directors (Bruce Beresford, George Miller, Phillip Noyce, Fred Schepisi, and Peter Weir), actors (Bryan Brown, Judy Davis, Mel Gibson, Jacki Weaver), cinematographers and other craftspeople, the Australian Film Revival of the 1970s was the last major “new wave” to erupt in the wake of France’s “nouvelle vague,” but also one of the most prolific. In this series, the Film Society at Lincoln Center presents a comprehensive overview, featuring a mix of established classics and forgotten gems, in restored prints courtesy of the National Film and Sound Archive.
