The Screen Guide

In 1964 when five young newly-arrived immigrants met in a Sydney migrant hostel and formed a garage band, little did they know they’d take Australian rock’n’roll to the world. FRIDAY ON MY MIND is far more than a classic 'rags-to-riches' tale. It’s a story of identity, of re-invention, of belonging. It’s a story with powerful contemporary relevance which sees five disparate immigrant boys band together with an equally talented young visionary from the top end of town to create Australia’s first truly international rock group.
