CLOSE UP WITH BRUCE BERESFORD – LIVE ON STAGE

The sometimes controversial Bruce Beresford, one of Australia’s seminal filmmakers, the only Australian director to have had a film in Competition at Cannes (Fringe Dwellers, 1986) AND win the Best Picture Oscar (Driving Miss Daisy, 1989), will be the inaugural subject of Director’s Close Up (Monday, Jan. 31, 6.30pm), at Sydney University’s Continuing Education Program, which is open to the public (places still available, $45 Book&Pay 02 9036 4789 or pay at door), and will include a career interview by Andrew L. Urban, a Q&A, plus scenes from his biopic, Bride of the Wind, never seen in Australia.

Urban Cinefile’s Andrew L. Urban is presenting the course, which is in two parts: the Actor’s Close up follows on February 28, also at 6.30, also at the Stephen Roberts Theatre at Sydney University, which is fully equipped with audio visual systems, stadium seating and a large screen. The guest actor will be announced shortly.

Beresford’s best known films include Breaker Morant, Don’s Party, Tender Mercies, The Getting of Wisdom, and Black Robe; he will also discuss less successful films such as the disastrous King David.

Illustrated with clips from their careers, the interviews will tease out the creative and personal issues that make the subjects tick. The courses are filling up but there are still places available ($45 each or $70 for both)
