Take a trip down the highway with Dorothy

Rock 'n' Roll meets The Wizard of Oz in this singular portrait of the Australian youth culture of the 70s, helmed by experimental filmmaker Chris Löfvén.

Dorothy is a 16-year-old groupie riding with an up-and-coming rock band when, suddenly, their van is in a road accident, and she hits her head. She wakes up in an alternate reality that's as gritty and realistic as the one she came from, and learns that she killed a young thug with the van. A gay clothier called the Glynn the Good Fairy gives her a pair of red shoes as a reward to help her see the last concert of the Wizard, an androgynous rock singer, in the city (Melbourne) that evening. Throughout her journey, she is pursed by the thug's vengeful brother and becomes the traveling companion of a dumb surfer, a heartless mechanic, and a tough biker.

Saturday session includes post-screening Q&A with director Chris Löfvén and stars Bruce Spence and Gary Waddell.
