Show Me The Magic + Documentary Masterclass

July 16, 2023 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Feature Documentary/2012/Australia/74min/Directed by Cathy Henkel

Cathy Henkel’s documentary explores the life and work of cinematographer and DoP Don McAlpine, the man responsible for Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge! – both of which he won BAFTAs for – as well as The Dressmaker, Lambs of God, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Peter Pan, and Predator, and many others. 

In Show Me the Magic Henkel tells McAlpine’s story, examining the cinematographer’s personal story and his successful career. 

Screened in retrospective and accompanied by a very special masterclass from Cathy Henkel, this is a session not to be missed and essential for anyone interested in the processes of documentary storytelling. Earlier this year Cathy was honoured with the prestigious Stanley Hawes Award, a lifetime achievement that recognises her outstanding contribution to the Australian documentary and factual sector. Her career spans more than 30 years as a documentary producer, director and writer, with notable works such as The Burning Season, I Told You I Was Ill: Spike MilliganRise of the Eco-Warriors, and including Laura’s Choice, which premiered at Revelation in 2020.
