'I want wild, I want innovative, unusual and visually extraordinary.' ~ Jill Bilcock
This documentary about internationally renowned film editor Jill Bilcock charts how an outspoken arts student in 1960s Melbourne became one of the world’s most acclaimed film artists.
Jill Bilcock: Dancing The Invisible focuses on the life and work of one of the world’s leading film artists, Academy Award-nominated film editor Jill Bilcock.
Iconic Australian films Strictly Ballroom, Muriel’s Wedding, Moulin Rouge!, Red Dog, and The Dressmaker bear the unmistakable look and sensibility of Bilcock’s visual inventiveness, but it was her brave editing choices in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo+Juliet that changed the look of cinema the world over, inspiring one Hollywood critic to dub her editing style as that of a “Russian serial killer on crack”.
With a back-story as colourful and surprising as her films, and featuring commentary from Cate Blanchett, Baz Luhrmann, Shekhar Kapur, Phil Noyce and Fred Schepisi, this documentary is a wonderful insight into the art of editing and the profound impact it has on storytelling.
Film editor Jill Bilcock is the unsung heroine behind many of Australia's all-time favourite films - Red Dog, Muriel's Wedding, The Dressmaker, The Dish, Strictly Ballroom, Japanese Story, Head On and many more. A rare 'behind the scenes' insight into what makes brilliant cinema.
Exclusive Season starts on Thursday, July 26th at Luna Leederville
