Dossier on Australian Exploitation

To celebrate the “Focus on Ozploitation” program screening of several important Australian exploitation films from the 1970s and ’80s at the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF), Senses of Cinema has delved back into the archives to find articles written at the time of each film’s production or release. These have been chosen to present a historical point of view in contrast with (but also to complement) the views expressed about these same films in Mark Hartley’s documentary, Not Quite Hollywood, which is having its world première at MIFF. “Focus on Ozploitation” is co-presented by MIFF and Australian Centre For the Moving Image (ACMI) and curated by Mark Hartley and ACMI.
