Hunt Angels

Hunt Angels (Alec Morgan, 2006) docudrama; Australian release August 10 2006; little-known episode in Oz cinematic history: true and little known story of Rupert Kathner and Alma Brooks, tenacious pioneers of the Australian film industry; premiere 23 July 2006 Chauvel Theatre; opening film MIFF 26 July 2006

I'm glad I was able to catch this: obviously I'm a sucker for a film about Oz Cin - but this is much better than its 20c. budget might suggest. It's also prolly much better than any of the Kathner/Brooks films.

Innovative and entertaining, Hunt Angels plays with cinematic tools to bring the 1930s mood alive by clever use of digital technology. Archival stills and footage is [sic] seamlessly integrated and enhanced ... Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile.
