It’s the last day of summer school holidays in 1990s Perth and over 24 hours, a kaleidoscopic chronicle of an ordinary suburb unfolds.
Captured on 16mm film with a unique tone and freewheeling rhythm, Bassendream revisits the tender interactions, eccentric escapades and extreme independence we all remember from growing up when the backyards were bigger and home was just a place to sleep.
Against a musical backdrop of Australian classics from the era, this is a raw, refreshing and playful look at the growing pains of youth, back before the internet had all the answers.
