AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'An irresistible and joyful journey into the life and work of legendary Australian cinematographer Don McAlpine, filmed during the shoot of X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Don's 53rd film Mental, by PJ Hogan (Muriel's Wedding, Peter Pan) which was also Don's first digital film. His career includes seminal films such as Patriot Games, Predator, Peter Pan and Mrs. Doubtfire. With directors Bruce Beresford and Gillian Armstrong, we explore the heritage of Don's remarkable Australian films including the iconic Breaker Morant and My Brilliant Career. We meet Paul Mazursky who gave him his big break in Hollywood with The Tempest and Down and Out in Beverley Hills. Baz Luhrman and Catherine Martin take us behind the scenes of Tempest; Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge! Show Me The Magic will engage and delight anyone who has ever been touched by the magic of movies.' (Publisher's blurb)
