This precious interview had been planned by Albie Thoms and Kriszta Doczy since the beginning of 2012. During that year Albie was battling with his illness and using every drop of his energy to finish his book “My Gen” about the Sixties alternative underground film makers and artists in Sydney. Finally, just three weeks before he passed away Albie sat down with Kriszta and they started the conversation they had planned for so long. The interview was cut short, the book had to be finished and sent to the printer, and Albie was hoping to attend his last party, the launch of his book. See more

Love and Work is an undisguised autobiography. The characters are sometimes played by actors, at other times they are documentary figures taken from home movies or experimental movies made by David Perry. The title came from a statement by Sigmund Freud who, when asked what were the most important things in his life replied: “love and work.” This might be a heavy burden for an Australian personal film to carry, but there it is.
David Perry can get very serious at times, the time of making Love and Work must have been one of those. See more

Projected on two screens, with two separate soundtracks, the always exceptional, and occasionally brilliant, photographic images are enhanced by de Bruyn’s rigorous control over a wide variety of experimental techniques. Without overindulging in any of them, de Bruyn uses animation, optical illusions, time lapse, solarization, hand tinting, flash frames, refilming and flicker effects, accompanied by a dense atmosphere of word puns, dialogue, primal screams, music and even recycled and letraseted soundtracks.
