Melbourne-based filmmaker Donna McRae is undaunted by ‘swimming against the tide’. She lectures at Deakin University and works across colour, black & white, long takes and multi-channel video with exceptional fluency. Her particular interrogations of ghosts, 19th century gender roles and post-punk rock‘n’roll offer a surprising and powerful potential.

After graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts, Donna had several shorts selected for local and international festivals while her micro-budget feature, Johnny Ghost(2012), won seven awards and two Special Jury Prizes. Her video installations have screened in galleries here and overseas and she makes collaborative works and music videos with visual artist Michael Vale.

Her feature documentary Cobby: The Other Side of Cutehas just premiered in San Francisco and her next project, a ‘ghost western’ about Ned Kelly’s sister, is currently in development along with a Female Horror Anthology with Unicorn Films.

Lost Gully Road is her second ghost film.
