JILL BILCOCK: DANCING THE INVISIBLE
Australia / 2018 / 78 min / DCP

Director : Axel Grigor


Introduced by Axel Grigor

The film 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. 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.
