Filming to start on Midnight Oil: Backburning

Production has commenced on BACKBURNING, a theatrical feature film about Midnight Oil.

BACKBURNING will be the definitive story of the band, from their beginnings in 1975 as a group named Farm to today, when they reformed for their hugely successful world tour.

The film is fully supported by the band and will take us into the social fabric of Australian culture and politics through the music and activism of one of Australia's most iconic, successful and controversial bands of all time.

The film will be written and directed by Paul Clarke, produced by Martin Fabinyi and Carolina Sorensen, and is a co-production between Blink TV and Beyond Entertainment. It will be distributed theatrically by Roadshow Entertainment, and supported by ABC-TV, Screen Australia, Create NSW, Sony Music and Sony ATV.
