FUJIFILM Australia today gave details of three new Australian movies and one recent AFI winner shot exclusively on FUJIFILM stock. FUJIFILM General Manager Recording Media/Motion Picture Film Marc Van Agten said, “It is a very exciting time for the Australian film industry and these projects are a good indication of the quality of movies we can expect to see throughout 2009.”
The first of the new movies is BRAN NUE DAE directed by Rachel Perkins and shot by DOP Andrew Lesnie on ETERNA 250T and ETERNA 500T (Lesnie also shot the Australian film Love’s Brother on FUJIFILM stock). BRAN NUE DAE stars Geoffrey Rush, Magda Szubanski, Deborah Mailman, Ernie Dingo and Missy Higgins. As Australia's first Aboriginal musical the source material is semi-autobiographical, based on the story of writer Jimmy Chi's life in Broome and is a 3,000km journey of self discovery through spectacular landscape.
