Film for a Purpose

Director: John Hughes
Year: 2018
Duration: 13 Minutes

A short film made for the conference Uses of Cinema, Monash University (November 2018) and presented with a hint of irony as a sponsored film, by John Flaus, this conference presentation on the subject of the ‘utilitarian film’, offers a précis of my work up until the end of 2018 on the ARC Discovery project ‘Utilitarian film in Australia 1945-1980’.
