Dancing The Invisible screening in Wellington

Posted Tuesday 31 Jul 2018

Wellingtonians, check out this intriguing doco about the woman behind many of Australia's best-loved films. Screening as part of the NZIFF 2018, and executive-produced by Sue Maslin, Jill Bilcock: Dancing The Invisible 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 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, inspiring one Hollywood critic to dub her editing style as that of a "Russian serial killer on crack".
