INTO THE MAELSTROM
Radio Birdman exploded onto an unsuspecting Sydney music scene in 1974 with a raw, high-energy rock n roll that polarised audiences, only to self-implode five-years later. In the process they became one of the most evolutionary and influential bands Australia has ever produced.
Into the Maelstrom is a brief history of Radio Birdman told through interviews with four of its original members and Australian icons Damien Lovelock, Dare Jennings and Mark Colvin.
This seven-minute film was selected as a finalist for Tropfest 2016. It was screened at the festival in Sydney's Centennial Parklands and simulcast on the SBS2 network. The film was made as a teaser for a long-form TV project currently in development.
