Director Haydyn Keenan in conversation with Nathan Smith.

In this clip Haydyn talks about his sheer elation at landing in LA in the early 1980s to raise finance for his feature film Pandemonium (1987). Sharing chaotic digs with band members of the soon to be Crowded House, Haydyn navigates through a system very much different to the Australian film funding model.

Haydyn Keenan is an Australian director best known for his edgy features 27A (1974) and Going Down (1982), and numerous documentaries, including Persons of Interest (2014) through his Smart St. Films company in collaboration with creative partner Esben Storm.
