As a special treat exclusively for Adelaide audiences, the Mercury CX is pleased to host a screening of this rare documentary portrait of Wong Kar Wai’s frequent collaborator; the eccentric, multi-talented cinematographer and Australian Hong Kong resident Christopher Doyle.
Showcasing Doyle’s work using footage from his films such as Gus Van Sant’s remake of Psycho, the film contains fascinating shots of Hong Kong street life in the city that Doyle has come to love and call his home. It is an intimate look at Doyle and his art with contributions from Wong Kar Wai and others who have worked alongside him. Chris Doyle: Orientations – Stirred Not Shaken captures the unique talents of this maverick, free spirit through an exploration of his work and the extraordinary life he leads.
Post screening Q&A with Producer and Mercury CX CEO Karena Slaninka.
