Black Cockatoo Crisis
A new feature length social impact documentary film, ‘Black Cockatoo Crisis’ is currently in production in WA.

Following the screening of this femme-horror barnstormer, film specialists Damien Spiccia and Clare Toonen will discuss the film and its bloody bestselling blueprint, described at the time as “keep(ing) you interested and horrified to the very last page.” On Sunday 10 April at 2pm, Book to Film doubles down on ’70s shockers with ‘Don’t Look Now’, the haunting and unforgettable 1973 Venice-set tale of grief, solace and seeing, which stars never-better Donald Sutherland and Julie Christy. Daphne du Maurier wrote the brittle and lithe short story on which this is based. Tom Vincent and Terri ann White will host, discuss and shiver along with you and ‘Don’t Look Now’ will be screening in a magnificent FULLY RESTORED 4K Version!
