The classic Australian kids film, Storm Boy, gets a deep dive on this episode with a new guest – Ben Kooyman. Henri Safran’s classic is a powerful, important film about a young boy and his relationship with a pelican that he helps raise. In this episode we talk about the history of Storm Boy, where it stands in the the Australian New Wave period and discuss David Gulpilil’s career.
Ben runs a fantastic website called Down Under Flix which was part of the inspiration for this show. Make sure to head over to the site and give his reviews a read, and also follow him on twitter here.
