The Screen Guide

An illuminating profile of the writer David Malouf, recognised as one of Australia's finest novelists and poets. Shot in Australia, Italy, England and Ireland, this film uses a combination of interviews, integrated dramatisations, archival footage and cinema verité sequences to explore the work of this complex man. It reveals a writer who looks closely into ordinary lives and events and finds something precious in them, giving those mundane moments meaning and making them into art.
