Carlton + Godard = Cinema

Buesst’s leisurely, intimate and at times quite personal documentary on the ‘60s & early ‘70s independent Melbourne filmmaking scene centred in Carlton is one of the most significant cinematic contributions to Australian film history. A kind of underground chronicle of a period widely assumed to not have produced any filmmaking, it is a testament to the perseverance & energy of this important but neglected scene. It includes generous excerpts from such rarely screened but seminal works as Mangiamele’s Clay, Yackety Yack, Buesst’s own work & a string of films (Pudding Thieves, Hey Al Baby) made under the auspices of MUFS, the Melbourne Cinémathčque’s galant predecessor.
