Listen to Into the Archives: Molly Manning Walker, Ivan Sen, and Simon Baker45:0725 March 2024

This week on Primal Screen, join Flick Ford as we delve into our archives, bringing to the forefront some of the most engaging and thought-provoking conversations from 2023.

Kicking things off, we take you back to our discussion with the talented Molly Manning Walker, a London-based cinematographer and filmmaker whose debut feature film, HOW TO HAVE SEX, captured audiences at its Australian premiere during last year's Melbourne International Film Festival. Recorded amidst the festival's buzz, this week's featured interview sheds light on the nuanced portrayal of consent and the intricate ways partying emerges as a pivotal rite of passage within the narrative. Since its heartfelt debut, HOW TO HAVE SEX has transitioned from festival screens to a general release in cinemas, now available for viewing at local cinemas across Melbourne.

Continuing our journey through Primal Screen's memorable interviews, we look back to May 2023 to revisit a conversation that resonated deeply with our listeners. The spotlight falls on the esteemed director Ivan Sen alongside the acclaimed actor Simon Baker, as they delve into the heart of their film LIMBO. In this gripping narrative, detective Travis, portrayed by Baker, finds himself in a small town, haunted by the unsolved homicide of an Aboriginal woman. A story that intertwines mystery with poignant social commentary, LIMBO invites viewers into a reflective exploration of justice and community. LIMBO is currently available for streaming on ABC iview.
