Into the Streets
Documentary // 5 mins // 2013

Writer // Director

SYNOPSIS
“It started the breakout of a movement in this country.”
In a time when the gay community was in fear of public persecution, partygoers took to
the streets to declare they had no reason to hide. It was 1978 in Sydney and Craig was a
naïve teenager who became swept up in the birth of a movement. Through a fragmented
recollection, he revisits the chaotic events of the first Sydney Gay Mardi Gras.
