MIDNIGHT OIL 1984
A vivid portrait of the era and the songs that embodied it.
The story of the sweat-soaked, hardworking rock and roll band whose music galvanised a generation of young Australians and inspired them to believe in the power of music to change the world. Feel the electric energy on stage and witness the personal struggles of the band members as they try to balance the equally compelling demands of both music and politics when lead singer Peter Garrett decides to join the race for an Australian Government Senate seat. A vivid portrait of the era and the songs that embodied it, this is an up close and personal look at the iconic rock band, seen on the big screen for the first time. Film details.
