Heard today that the superb book “Shadowcatchers”: a history of cinematography in Australia by the wonderful, fearless and feisty Martha Ansara, is to be launched at the AFTRS on May 31st, by Bruce Beresford. Martha, who came through film school during the 70s, as I did, has had a huge influence on all of us. This book, a work of scholarship and a labor of love for her, will be an amazing record of an extraordinary period in Aussie cinema. Our mentor, Brian Probyn, would be so proud of Martha’s achievement.
Cant wait for the 31st!
