This screening is introduced by Producer Glenys Rowe and Director Richard Lowenstein, and followed by a discussion about the making of Dogs in Space.

‘…A historical document for reasons other than its set and setting. It features one of the few film performances of INXS front-man Michael Hutchence, who headlines the cast as Sam, leader of a band from which the film takes its name. They mostly play in the central shared house setting, nowhere big or special, and certainly nowhere without booze splattered on the floor. - Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian
