Notes "During the sixties there was a group of energetic filmmakers working around Carlton. Many of these films like Pudding Thieves, Brake Fluid, Bonjour Balwyn and Hey Al Baby are no longer readily available. Now here at last we have a retrospective on that period, on the style and the motivations of this group of local film pioneers who have long since discovered obscurity." -Container.

Summary When a film-making movement started in Carlton during the sixties, helped by sync cameras like the Eclair and the Arriflex, we looked to the French New Wave as our inspiration. In particular, the films of Jean-Luc Godard and his idiosyncratic vision of the world seemed to set the style. In retrospect this was strange as his films were rarely screened and not particularly popular then, or now for that matter. Here for the first time - an assembly of extracts from several Carlton films, together with bits and pieces of Godard's early films for comparison, revealing much about a fascinating period of Melbourne film-making activity. Also on this DVD we examine the life and work of Giorgio Mangiamele, a tenacious film pioneer who came to Carlton in the early fifties and created numerous films in the neo-realist tradition.
