The Ritz is proud to present a 35mm Q&A screening of Australian classic Newsfront (1978), with director Phillip Noyce joining us via Zoom, and star Chris Haywood and producer David Elfick joining us live in cinema for a special post-screening discussion.

A seminal film in Australia’s screen history, Newsfront represents the emergence of the Australian movie industry on the world stage, winning awards, rave reviews and box office success at home and abroad and launching the career of Phillip Noyce.

Synopsis

In Australia in the late 1940s, before the coming of television, Len Maguire (Bill Hunter) and his young sidekick Chris (Chris Haywood) cover the big news stories for the Cinetone newsreel company. An old-school cameraman, Len is loyal to the company, the Australian Labor party and the Catholic church, but times are changing. He struggles to maintain his principles in turbulent times.
