‘1978’ is a new musical feature film which explores the birth of Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. The movie will be written by British screenwriter Pete McTighe (Dr Who, ‘Discovery of Witches’, ‘The Rising’, ‘Glitch’, and ‘Wentworth’) and is being readied for production by Bronte Pictures.
The movie will be set in the heart of Kings Cross amidst the riots and community conflict leading up to the first ever Mardi Gras parade.
The project is a while off, with principal photography expected to commence early next year, but exciting nevertheless.
More to come…
