Mark McManus and Jeanie Drynan in 2000 Weeks
Mark McManus as Will and Jeanie Drynan as Jacky in a photograph by Mark Strizic and Robin Copping from Two Thousand Weeks (Tim Burstall, Australia, 1969).
'The mistress he didn't quite know what to do with', is how Jeanie Drynan describes her role opposite Scottish actor Mark McManus in Two Thousand Weeks.
In her NFSA oral history, Drynan recalls 'loving every minute' of the ambitious, low-budget, all-Australian film shoot in January and March 1968.
Photographer Mark Strizic, whose work is held in several national collections, including ten portraits at the National Portrait Gallery, shot the stills in his distinctive style. Former director of the National Gallery of Victoria, Eric Westbrook once described Strizic as a 'poet of the fleeting moment'.
