30 Year Anniversary: Dogs In Space

To mark the 30th anniversary of Richard Lowenstein’s 1986 cult classic starring Michael Hutchence, ACMI will screen two sessions of ‘Dogs In Space’ from 1 April.Β 

This film preceded my introduction to life in Brunswick Street. It is one of the films that shaped who I eventually became.

After seeing Dogs In Space, our travels on the West Preston tram from Thornbury to the city changed. We became acutely aware of the fascinating world of artistic “bodgies”, hippies and alternative folks who inhabited the pubs and original terrace houses in Fitzroy. My sister and I thenΒ rented a place in Berry St, Richmond, right next door to where most of the film was shot (that epic house). What a way to enter adulthood.
