Into the Streets

2013  |  Hybrid Drama / Documentary  |  6 minutes

In a time when the gay community was discriminated and in fear of public persecution, partygoers took to the streets to show they would no longer hide. It was Sydney 1978, when Craig, a naïve teenager was swept up in the birth of a movement. Through a fragmented recollection, we revisit the chaotic events of the first Sydney Gay Mardi Gras.
