State of Oz Cinema /
Youth on the March


by Mike Retter

The Pure Shit "State Of Australian Cinema" series continues with an audio answer to such quandaries – a special episode of Meat Bone Express podcast, with Tom Mann interviewing Mike Retter.

 

First broadcast on Radio Adelaide.

 

The state of Australian film is critiqued through positive experiences in the local indie scene, empowered to produce and exhibit work outside of the system.

 

The third act is more firebrand and Retter unleashes upon inaction, pub-conversation and academic studies, but encourages being rooted in the history of film.

 

("State of Oz Cinema" thoughts from around the 8 minute mark.)

 




 
Mike Retter is a film director, of the indie feature Youth On The March, creator of the zine "Cinema Now", and part of the Port Film Co-op.
