SPECIAL EDUCATION EDITION
Jill Bilcock: The Art of Film Editing focuses on the life and work of one of the world’s leading film artists, Academy award nominated film editor Jill Bilcock.
Iconic Australian films Strictly Ballroom, Muriel’s Wedding, Moulin Rouge!, Red Dog, and The Dressmaker bear the unmistakable look and sensibility of Bilcock’s visual inventiveness. But it was her brave editing choices in Romeo+Juliet that changed the look of cinema the world over, inspiring one Hollywood critic to dub her a “Russian serial killer on crack”.
With a back-story as colourful and surprising as her films, and featuring commentary from Cate Blanchett, Baz Luhrmann, Shekhar Kapur and Fred Schepisi, this documentary is a wonderful insight into the art of editing and the profound impact it has on storytelling.More Information
